    B1327 - Equality Act 2010 (Amendment) Bill 2018, Joecphillips seconded by countbrandenberg

    A
    BILL TO
    Make it unlawful to treat a disabled person more favourably than a non-disabled person.


    BE IT ENACTED by The Queen's most Excellent Majesty, by and with the advice and consent of the Commons in this present Parliament assembled, in accordance with the provisions of the Parliament Acts 1911 and 1949, and by the authority of the same, as follows:—

    1- Repeal
    (1) In Part 2, Chapter 2 of the Equality Act 2010 remove from section (13):
    (3)If the protected characteristic is disability, and B is not a disabled person, A does not discriminate against B only because A treats or would treat disabled persons more favourably than A treats B.

    2- Citation and commencement
    (1) This Act extends to the United Kingdom.
    (2) The provisions of this Act come into force on Royal Assent
    (3) This Act may be referred to as the Equality Act 2010 (Amendment) Act 2018

    Notes:
    Currently “It is always lawful to treat a disabled person more favourably than a non-disabled person.” I don’t think that this should be allowed as this act is supposed to “eliminate discrimination” but it allows it in favour of certain people.

    Nay, since a repeal allows positive discrimination to occur.

    Aye - Discrimination should be unlawful no matter who are the perpetrators.

    However, it is important to note that it is not unlawful for an employer to treat a disabled person more favourably in comparison to a non-disabled person.1
