HC Deb 28 February 1972 vol 832 c34W
95. Mr. Selwyn Gummer

asked the Secretary of State for Employment whether he will initiate discussions with the Confederation of British Industry, the Trades Union Congress and the nationalised industries to discuss what further voluntary measures can be taken to remove discrimination against women, particularly those seeking executive employment.

Mr. Dudley Smith

As a first step, my Department's Advisory Committee on the Employment of Women, which includes representatives of employers and trade unions, is being consulted about the implications for industry generally of the recent report of a study on the employment of women in the non-industrial Civil Service.
