Andrew Bridgen calls for equality law to be applied equally

21st February 2018

Andrew Bridgen highlights recent breaches of equality law and calls for the Equality Act 2010 to be applied equally.

Twice in the last four weeks, the Equality and Human Rights Commission has had cause to write to the Labour party regarding breaches of equality law. Does the Prime Minister agree that equality law must be applied equally, and that it exists to protect all groups equally?

I am happy to agree with my hon. Friend on that point. I was in opposition when the Equality Act 2010 went through Parliament, and we supported that Act. It is there to ensure—exactly as he says—that people are treated equally.
