This constituted 0.26% of the total number of responses received, and included responses from both those in favour of and those opposed to explicit legal protection against caste discrimination being included in the Equality Act 2010. Almost all late responses were campaign responses identical to others which had arrived on time.</p><p>Respondents had already had almost six months to reply to the consultation, and late responses were not taken into account in the Government’s analysis of the consultation’s results.

Our consultation on Closing the Gender Pay Gap closed on 6 September, and received nearly 700 responses. Over 200 employers and business organisations responded, including the CBI, whose members employ around a third of the private sector workforce. We have announced that this will apply to large employers and to large public bodies. We will be working with employers on how this will be implemented as they will be required to publish information showing the differences in pay between men and women.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>A number of Equality and Human Rights Commissioner appointments, including to the role of Disability Commissioner, were advertised between September and November 2016. The role of Disability Commissioner was not a statutory post but rather, a role created by the Commission. Commissioners filling that role customarily chaired the Commission’s statutory Disability Committee as a key element of their duties. The Equality and Human Rights Commission is an independent body and decisions about the roles and responsibilities of Board members are a matter for the Commission itself. Following an Order - The Equality Act 2006 (dissolution of the Disability Committee) Order 2014 SI No. 406 - which came into force on 01 April 2014, the statutory Disability Committee was dissolved on 31 March 2017, before the appointment of any new Commissioners could be made, and no candidate for the advertised appointments was specifically offered the role of Disability Commissioner.</p> more like this
