To ask the Secretary of State for Transport, if he will undertake an Equality Impact Assessment of Driver Only Operation.

We are not planning to undertake an assessment, as it is for the individual operator to decide what level of assessment to carry out, in relation to their Legal obligations under the Equality Act and their Disabled Peoples Protection Policy which is a Passenger Operator License Condition.
