17 May - AHO raises Early Day Motion in Parliament

0 Comments

The AHO have asked for an Early Day Motion to be tabled before the House of Commons, which we hope will have the support of a cross-party group of MPs. Please encourage as many of the MPs that you know to sign the EDM. Early Day Motion 117 says:

 “That this House notes the serious concerns expressed by the Hindu communities at the possible consequences of the provisions in the Enterprise and Regulatory Reform Act 2013 relating to caste within the protected characteristics of the Equality Act 2010; and recognises the need to ensure a full and proper consultation period of at least two years with the affected communities, to address the issues they have raised about practical difficulties with the legislation.”

As you maybe be aware, we want as many Hindus as possible to send in a petition to their local MP asking to be consulted. This has been printed in this week's Asian Voice Newspaper: Please see link below and attachment:
