HC Deb 16 May 1968 vol 764 cc275-6W
50. Mr. Biggs-Davison

asked the Secretary of State for Employment and Productivity whether she will now take steps to ensure that no employers of labour in the public sector are making it a condition of the employment of Sikhs that they do not wear turbans.

Mr. Hattersley

So far as the Government service and nationalised industries are concerned, I understand that such conditions are not applied unless they are part of the operational requirements of the job.
