Eliminating Gender Pay Gap after 31 December 2020
The new Minister for Women, Victoria Atkins, has answered a number of questions about the Government’s commitment to eliminating the Gender Pay Gap. In particular, she explains what the Government approach will be in terms of maintaining that commitment after 31 December 2020.
This includes amendments agreed by the House to the European Union (Withdrawal) Bill which relate to the provision of equality impact statements by Ministers when making secondary legislation under the Bill once enacted. The Minister also refers to the Government commitment to extend that requirement to other Brexit-related primary legislation.
