The Parliamentary Under-Secretary of State, Department of Trade and Industry

I am pleased to say that the Bill was introduced into the House of Commons on 2 March. It will be proceeded with in the normal way, in accordance with demands on the parliamentary timetable. We hope that the Bill will be enacted with the minimum delay in order to bring greater equality, diversity and respect for human rights to benefit individuals and contribute to our goal of a fair, prosperous and cohesive society.
