star this property answer text <p>In 2017 we introduced ground-breaking regulations requiring large employers to publish their gender pay gaps annually. We have recently passed the second reporting deadline, and over 10,000 employers have provided their data. The Equality and Human Rights Commission will take action with those who have failed to report or provided inaccurate data.</p><p> </p><p>We are supporting employers to take action to reduce their gaps. We have recently published guidance on how to diagnose the causes of a gap and how to create an effective action plan.</p><p> </p><p>The government is also taking action to close the gender pay gap by making flexible working a reality for all employees, introducing Shared Parental Leave, supporting the Hampton-Alexander Review to increase the number of women in senior leadership positions, and doubling the childcare entitlement for working parents of 3 and 4 year olds.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>It is unacceptable that users of assistance dogs experience unlawful discrimination in the provision of goods, services or public functions. The Equality Act 2010 places a duty on organisations and service providers to make reasonable adjustments to improve access to premises and services so that disabled customers, including those with assistance dogs, have the same access to goods and services and are not placed at a substantial disadvantage compared to non-disabled customers.</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 supports disabled individuals who have experienced discrimination to take their cases to court. The Government’s tailored review of the EHRC, published in November 2018, has recommended that EHRC should focus on the use of its unique powers as enforcer and regulator of the Equality Act.</p><p> </p><p>The Equality Advisory and Support Service (EASS) provides free bespoke advice and in-depth support to individuals by telephone (0808 800 0082), textphone (0808 800 0084) or via the EASS website.</p>

There was a measurable increase in the already very low levels of radioactive noble gases discharged; however, all discharges remained well below the levels authorised by the Scottish Environmental Protection Agency. The Shore Test Facility reactor at the NRTE ceased operations in July 2015.</p> more like this

I cannot discuss specific criteria or their weighting at this time as to do so would be prejudicial to the commercial interests of the Ministry of Defence.</p> more like this
