S5W-22594: Kezia Dugdale (Lothian)

Scottish Labour

Date lodged: 9 April 2019

To ask the Scottish Government how many times under the Equality Act 2010 the Equality and Human Rights Commission has challenged the policy and practice of playing of loud music by service suppliers in Scotland, which can cause significant disadvantage to people with invisible disabilities, such as hearing problems, myalgic encephalomyelitis (ME), autism and brain injuries.

Answered by: Christina McKelvie 25 April 2019

This is a matter for The Equality and Human Rights Commission which is an independent body and holds its own records on cases where it has taken action. The information requested is therefore not held by the Scottish Government.
