Report on the future of equality and human rights in Wales

‘The future of equality and human rights in Wales’ was published by the National Assembly for Wales in August 2013.  The report followed a short inquiry that considered:

  • How well the specific public sector equality duties are functioning in Wales;
  • The Equality and Human Rights Commission in Wales;
  • The link between poverty and equality and the socio-economic duty; and
  • Accountability for equality and human rights legislation in Wales.

The first recommendation in the report is:

The Welsh Government should seek primary legislative competence for the National Assembly in relation to the general public sector equality duty, so that if the UK Government ever repeals it, the Welsh specific public sector equality duties would not automatically fall.
