The Equality Bill is no-more it's an Act.

Will the % section ever be adopted, who knows?

Personally I have no idea.

But my point is that the % will only apply to councils that restrict.

If the Law Commission suggest getting rid of restrictions, then the % provisions in the EQ Act will never come into being.

At the moment places without 100% WAV fleets are also unaffected.
