HC Deb 28 March 1973 vol 853 cc349-50W
Mr. William Hamilton

asked the Secretary of State for Employment if he will issue advice about their obligations to those employers who are taking action to circumvent the implementation of the Equal Pay Act, as recorded in paragraph 182 of the 1972 Report from the Office of Manpower Economics.

Mr. Chichester-Clark

In paragraph 182 of its report the Office of Manpower Economics statedWe found only a very few examples of employers who were deliberately taking action designed to circumvent the Act.

I propose shortly to issue a leaflet which will help all employers to understand and to meet their obligations under the Equal Pay Act.
