Socio-economic equality duty for public bodies in WalesSocio-economic equality duty for public bodies in Wales

The Welsh Government have voted to bring into force a duty for public bodies to take into consideration socio-economic equality. This is part of the Equality Act 2010. It will cover local authorities, however the documentation suggests that:

"As only specified public bodies are subject to the duty, the duty remains with that body. Therefore, the requirement to meet the duty does not pass to a third party through procurement, commissioning or outsourcing.

However, in circumstances where the procurement activity itself is considered by a specified public body to engage the duty, the relevant public body must consider how such arrangements reduce inequalities of outcome caused by socio-economic disadvantage."
