Equality Bill

Volume 481: debated on Tuesday 21 October 2008

10. To ask the Minister for Women and Equality what steps she is taking to consult young people on the provisions of the Equality Bill. (228324)

The consultation on the proposals for the Equality Bill included a children's consultation event organised on our behalf by the Children's Rights Alliance for England. Barbara Follett also met a small group of children and young people to discuss the impact the Equality Bill proposals may have on children and young people. Organisations representing children responded to the consultation paper and have also been invited to the regional stakeholder events on the Equality Bill which will take place during the next few months.
