Equality

Section 75 of the Northern Ireland Act 1998 requires the SELB, when carrying out its functions in relation to Northern Ireland, to have due regard to the need to promote equality of opportunity between nine categories of persons, namely:

Between persons of different religious belief, political opinion, racial group, age, marital status or sexual orientation; Between men and women generally; Between persons with a disability and persons without; and Between persons with dependants and persons without.

Without prejudice to its obligations above, the Board must also have regard to the desirability of promoting good relations between persons of different religious belief, political opinion or racial group.
