Equality and Human Rights Commission

Volume 497: debated on Monday 12 October 2009

To ask the Minister for Women and Equality what procedures apply to the grant of permission for the use of the (a) resources and (b) offices of the Equality and Human Rights Commission activities related to a private sector organisation. (290430)

Permission to use the resources and offices of the Equality and Human Rights Commission (EHRC) would not normally be granted for activities relating to private sector organisations.

Exceptionally the EHRC approved the use of their offices for a private sector organisation; however this was without the approval of the Government Equalities Office. The use of the EHRC offices for private sector organisation meetings has since ceased.
