Ó Snodaigh - Government obliged to make promoting equality a statutory duty

5 March, 2003

er for Justice, Equality, and Law Reform to ensure that the promised Equal Status Amendment Bill includes provisions on statutory duty, or else to introduce new legislation to this effect.

"For years now Sinn Féin have been saying that we need legislation in this state to provide for equality-proofing of law, policy, and budgetary decision-making legislation that will make promoting equality a statutory duty. This is an act of completion under the Good Friday Agreement that the government has absolute control over and therefore should progress without delay." ENDS
