A Victory for Common Sense

I have been making the case for scrapping the public sector diversity audits, under Labour's Equality Act. You can read my earlier post on this, and access my article for the Sunday Times here.

Yesterday, the coalition announced they were thinking twice about the Regulations that would force 27,000 schools, councils, police forces and other public bodies to audit their staff for social criteria including: age, disability, gender, ethnicity, sexuality, religion and other beliefs. The Regulations are a bureaucratic nightmare, a waste of money and socially divisive. So, this is a welcome victory for common sense - see the reporting in the Daily Telegraph today.
