Irish Language Bill

Volume 692: debated on Thursday 24 May 2007

asked Her Majesty's Government:

To what equality considerations the potential Irish Language Bill has been subjected. [HL3599]

In accordance with the requirements of Section 75 of the Northern Ireland Act 1998, an equality impact screening exercise was carried out as part of consultation on Irish language legislation and, as a result, an equality impact assessment was conducted and published for consultation. Part one of the equality impact assessment was published on 13 December 2006; part two was published on 19 January 2007.

This is now a matter for the devolved administration.
