§ 56. Mr. Gammans
asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer when he expects to announce the Government's decision regarding equal pay for men and women in the Government service.
§ Mr. Gammans
In view of the fact that the Government are now employing such a large percentage of women and intend to employ more, is it not reasonable to ask that they should set an example in this matter and come to an early decision?
§ Mr. Dalton
This has been for a very long time in incubation and I think we are entitled to have a good look at it, particularly as it involves increased expenditure if this is acted upon. In view of what he said, I think the hon. Gentleman would be watchful against such a proceeding.
