HC Deb 10 July 1975 vol 895 cc234-5W
Mr. Ronald Atkins

asked the Secretary of State for the Environment if he will give a general direction to all publicly-owned undertakings for which he has responsibility not to exercise sexual discrimination in granting employee concessions; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. Crosland

Employee concessions are a matter for the boards of the undertakings concerned, which are without doubt aware of any provisions of relevance in the Equal Pay Act 1970 and the Sex Discrimination Bill now before Parliament.
