answer text <p>The gender pay gap reporting website was created to enable over 10,000 employers of 250 or more employees to comply with their legal obligation to report their gender pay gap data. The website can be found at: <a href="https://gender-pay-gap.service.gov.uk/" target="_blank">https://gender-pay-gap.service.gov.uk/</a></p><p>The total cost of creating and maintaining the website to September 2018 in line with Government Digital Service guidelines was £2,349,808. The cost reflects several stages of digital design and development from the initial discovery phase £84,000, Alpha phase £249,600 and private beta £544,733 through to public beta and maintenance £1,471,476.</p> more like this

answer text <p>We have received a number of representations regarding section 106, as we have for other uncommenced provisions from the Equality Act 2010, and we continue to keep these provisions under review. Equality is never a one-time fix and it is right that we should keep re-examining the issues.</p><p>This Parliament is the most gender and LGBT diverse ever, but there is still more to do. Political parties are responsible for their candidate selection and should lead the way in improving women’s representation. Many are already doing so.</p><p>The Government’s Suffrage Centenary Fund is supporting a number of projects that aim to increase women’s participation in politics, and earlier this year we announced funding for disabled candidates to meet the costs of campaigning, primarily for the forthcoming English local elections in 2019.</p> more like this

For example, the Government has established the Centre for Public Appointments (CPA) in the Cabinet Office to ensure best practice is followed. As a result, the proportion of new female appointees to public boards has increased to 39%. We have also supported political parties to increase women’s representation thorough a combination of legislative and voluntary measures.</p><p> </p> more like this
