HC Deb 28 March 1974 vol 871 cc165-6W
30. Mr. Bates

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department which Minister has specific responsibility for Government policy on the legal status of women.

Dr. Summerskill

My right hon. Friend has the responsibility for co-ordinating progress in removing the legal disabilities of women and achieving equal status for them. It is, however, for other Ministers to answer for specific aspects of this subject which come within their particular spheres of responsibility.
