HC Deb 16 April 1991 vol 189 c392

That this House takes note of European Community Document No. 9908/90, relating to the third action programme on equal opportunities for men and women and the proposals described in the un-numbered Explanatory Memorandum submitted by the Department of Employment on 19th December 1990 and its Supplementary Explanatory Memorandum of 11 th March 1991 for a Council Resolution relating to the action programme; approves of the Government's support for the Programme's underlying principles; and endorses the Government's approach that any measures brought forward under the Programme must be considered on their merits taking account of their effect on national practices and policies, the extra burden likely to be placed on employers and the consequential impact on the level of employment.—[Mr. Patnick.]

Question agreed to.
