Announcing the consultation, the Welsh Government says -

‘The Socio-Economic Duty, a requirement of the Equality Act 2010, aims to ensure relevant public bodies consider the impact their key decisions have on addressing the inequalities which impact on a person’s access to both material and social resources i.e. employment, education, transport.

Before the Welsh Government commences the Duty, it is asking members of the public and key stakeholders for their views on a number of aspects, including which public bodies should be captured by the duty and clarification on how it is delivered.’
