The Equality and Human Rights Commission is an independent public body and decisions about the roles and responsibilities of its Board members, and how these are communicated within the organisation, are matters for the Commission itself. I have therefore asked the Commission’s Chief Executive Officer to write to my hon. Friend with the information requested. I will place a copy of the letter in the libraries of both Houses.
