HC Deb 27 May 1952 vol 501 c1159

The following Question stood upon the Order Paper:

60. Mrs. CASTLE,—To ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer when he hopes to announce the date on which a beginning will be made with the introduction of equal pay in the public services.

Mrs. Castle

On a point of order. To give the Government an opportunity to make a statement which the House was told 10 days ago they were prepared to make, would you, Sir, allow the Chancellor to answer Question No. 60, in order that he can announce the early and definite date on which equal pay is to be introduced?

Mr. Speaker

That is not a matter for me.
