Equality of Opportunity Committee
The purpose of the Equality of Opportunity Committee was to ensure that the Assembly had effective arrangements to promote the principle of equality of opportunity for all people in the exercise of its functions and the conduct of its business. The National Assembly's Standing Order 14
provides full details of the Committee's remit.
The Committee had a strong interest in seeing that a dialogue with groups representing minority and disadvantaged interests took place at all levels in the Assembly. In order to help to achieve this, the Equal Opportunities Commission, the Commission for Racial Equality, the Disability Rights Commission, Stonewall Cymru and the Welsh Language Board had standing invitations to attend meetings of the Committee as advisers.
