star this property answer text <p>Conversion therapy is wrong. We are determined to bring an end to this abhorrent practice and, as we said in the LGBT Action Plan, we are considering all legislative and non-legislative options to do this.</p><p> </p><p>We recognise this is a complex issue that we need to get right. We want to engage widely, and listen carefully, so that we can develop a range of measures that end these practices for good. We are conducting more detailed research into the experiences of those that have undergone conversion therapy, and will task the LGBT Advisory Panel with looking into this issue as their first priority when they meet for the first time, in the new year.</p><p> </p><p>Ending these practices will take time. It is crucial we get our response right so that we protect people from harm.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>The Equality Act 2010 places a duty on businesses and service providers to make reasonable adjustments to improve disabled people’s access to goods and services so they are not placed at a substantial disadvantage compared to non-disabled people. This reasonable adjustment duty is an anticipatory duty therefore those who provide goods, facilities and services to members of the public are expected to anticipate the reasonable adjustments that disabled customers may require, including auxiliary aids.</p><p> </p><p>The Equality and Human Rights Commission (EHRC) is the public body responsible for enforcing the Equality Act. In 2017, the EHRC published two pieces of guidance - a guide to help businesses understand what they can do to meet their legal duties to assistance dog owners, and a guide to help tourism businesses welcome people with access requirements. The EHRC also supports disabled individuals who have experienced discrimination to take their cases to court. The EHRC has delivered a Legal Support Project to increase access to justice for people experiencing disability discrimination. In 2017/18 it offered disabled groups £189,000 for legal assistance across 94 cases in areas including employment, education and public services. The EHRC is also increasing its legal capacity to advise on discrimination cases.&quot;</p><p> </p><p>In the Government’s view, an equalities ombudsman as recommended by the Guide Dogs report would not usefully add to the EHRC’s functions.</p>

star this property answer text <p>I have considered the analysis undertaken by the Office for National Statistics. The report demonstrates that women carry out an overall average of 60% more unpaid work than men. On average men do 16 hours per week of such unpaid work, which includes adult care and child care, laundry and cleaning, to the 26 hours of unpaid work done by women per week.</p><p> </p><p>This has relevance to our efforts to close the gender pay gap as this may be one of the factors that affects the number of hours that women work which in turn affects the gender pay gap. I am pleased to confirm that the draft regulations, requiring large employers to publish details of their gender pay gap, were laid in the house on Tuesday.</p><p> </p> more like this

The provisions in the Equality Act 2010 (Gender Pay Gap Information) Regulations 2017 have largely been replicated in the Equality Act 2010 (Specific Duties and Public Authorities) Regulations 2017. The legislation can be found at: <a href="http://www.legislation.gov.uk/ukdsi/2017/9780111153277/contents" target="_blank">http://www.legislation.gov.uk/ukdsi/2017/9780111153277/contents</a>.</p><p> </p><p>Subject to Parliamentary approval, these regulations will come into force in March 2017 and the specified public bodies will need to publish their first set of gender pay gap data before 30 March 2018. Both sets of regulations will require the same gender pay gap calculations and use the same methodology for calculating the data.</p> more like this
