To ask the Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government whether publicly funded goods, facilities and services are covered by the proposals on outlawing discrimination in the provision of goods and services. (110239)

The Government published a consultation paper in March setting out proposals for regulations that will prohibit discrimination on the grounds of sexual orientation in the provision of goods and services. The Government will publish a Response to consultation after the Christmas recess in good time for the laying of the regulations to come into force next April, alongside Part 2 of the Equality Act outlawing discrimination on grounds of religion or belief in the provision of goods and services.
