Lynne Featherstone, Minister for Equality, said that the Commission would be looking to appoint a new chair to replace Trevor Phillips, the former television executive and presenter, and conduct a review of the commission’s budget.
The new chair will be paid £56,000 a year for working two days a week compared with the current £112,000 for a three-and-a-half day week.
Ministers have brought forward a key review of how the EHRC discharges its core functions, warning that fundamental structural changes could be made to the EHRC’s remit, including some functions being carried out elsewhere, or splitting its responsibilities across new or existing bodies.
