On 19 November 2012, David Cameron gave a speech to the CBI conference about ‘plans to help British business thrive’, in which he said ‘we are calling time on Equality Impact Assessments’.
The speech refers to proposals for:
- Cutting back on judicial reviews
- Reducing government consultations
- Streamlining European legislation
- Stopping the gold-plating of legislation at home
A number of Equality and Diversity Forum member organisations and others have responded, criticising the Prime Minister’s comments.
