Dear Cabinet Office,

With regard to guidance for employers 'Managing gender pay reporting' - published by the Government Equalities Office (GEO) in conjunction with Acas in February 2019:

What legal advice did GEO seek regarding the guidance and its adherence to the stipulations of The Equality Act 2010 (Specific Duties and Public Authorities) Regulations 2017?
