Departmental Impact Assessments

Volume 487: debated on Tuesday 10 February 2009

To ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer how many equalities impact assessments his Department has undertaken in the last 12-month period for which figures are available; and what estimate he has made of the cost to the public purse of such assessments. (255064)

The Treasury has not led on or undertaken any formal equalities impact assessments in the last 12 months. The Treasury works with other Government Departments on a wide range of policies and the Departments implementing the policies and services are responsible for producing equalities impact assessments.

The Treasury's equality schemes (race, disability and gender) are available on the Treasury's public website and give examples of how the Treasury has promoted best practice and worked with other Departments to assess equalities impacts.
