To ask the Secretary of State for Transport when she expects the Government to respond to its recent consultation on proposals to amend Section 9 of the Race Relations Act 1976. (187214)

A summary of the responses to the consultation has been published on the Department for Transport website and has been placed in the Libraries of the House. During the course of the consultation, further issues for consideration were raised. We will be in a position to announce the Government position and timetable for amendment as soon as we have analysed the options in the light of these new points.
