The Government must act to embed equality into UK law after Brexit, according to a new report from the Women’s and Equality Committee.
Equality, regardless of sex, race, religion or other factors, is protected as part of our human rights. However, human rights in the UK are currently protected by a complex collection of laws and treaties, many of which are underpinned by EU law.
The committee, which is made up of 14 MPs from different political parties, stressed the Government must take “active steps to embed equality into domestic law and policy”.
