Equality: Age Discrimination

Volume 702: debated on Monday 23 June 2008

asked Her Majesty's Government:

Whether they plan to make provision to combat age discrimination in the provision of goods, facilities and services and a positive duty on public authorities to promote age equality within the Equality Bill. [HL4098]

These issues were considered as part of the discrimination law review, as set out in the consultation paper on proposals for the Equality Bill, A Framework for Fairness. The Government's proposals for the Equality Bill package will be published shortly.
