Departmental Impact Assessments

Volume 489: debated on Tuesday 10 March 2009

To ask the Secretary of State for Energy and Climate Change 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. (255075)

Since the Department’s creation on 3 October 2008, DECC has undertaken six equalities impact assessments (EIAs). Since undertaking equalities impact assessments is integrated into the Department’s policy making process, it is not possible to estimate any specific cost associated with the EIAs.
