Section 75

Section 75 of the Northern Ireland Act 1998 requires public authorities designated for the purposes of the Act to comply with two statutory duties. The first duty is the Equality of Opportunity duty, which requires public authorities in carrying out their functions relating to Northern Ireland to have due regard to the need to promote equality of opportunity between the nine equality categories of persons of different religious belief, political opinion, racial group, age, marital status or sexual orientation; men and women generally; persons with a disability and persons without; and persons with dependents and persons without. The second duty, the Good Relations duty, requires that public authorities in carrying out their functions relating to Northern Ireland have regard to the desirability of promoting good relations between persons of different religious belief, political opinion and racial group.

An equality screening has been undertaken and can be found here

The Department is obliged to scrutinize policies and projects to see whether they have the potential to affect people differently. In light of this the Department would appreciate any comments you have on the proposals which are material to the Section 75 duties.
