HC Deb 20 January 1989 vol 145 cc335-6W
Mr. McNamara

To ask the Secretary of State for Northern Ireland if he will implement the recommendations contained in paragraphs 15.5 to 15.110 and 15.112 to 15.123 of the Standing Advisory Commission on Human Rights' report on fair employment, Cm. 237; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. Viggers

[holding answer 16 January 1989]: The Fair Employment (Northern Ireland) Bill contains provisions which reflect the main recommendations of the SACHR report on fair employment in Northern Ireland. The Bill's provisions will implement, in whole or in part, well over half the 123 recommendations. In addition, the Government have broadly accepted a number of recommendations whose implementation does not require legislation.
