The Equality Bill: Duty to Reduce Socio-Economic Inequalities

This is a guide published by the Government Equalities Office (GEO) in January 2010 designed to form a bridge between the wording of the socio-economic duty, which was published in the Equality Bill in April 2009, and the draft statutory guidance to go with it, which we will be drafting and consulting on formally in the summer of 2010. It explains the background to the duty, the need for it, and how it will operate for each of the different types of public body that are covered by it. It also explains how compliance with the duty will be monitored, and answers the questions that have been put to the Government in our discussions with stakeholders.
