HC Deb 23 November 1982 vol 32 c427W
25. Miss Joan Lestor

asked the Secretary of State for Employment what factors he is taking into consideration in the proposal to amend the Equal Pay Act.

Mr. Alison

The main factor is the need to comply fully with the recent European Court judgment. As the hon. Member knows from my answer to her question of 11 November—[Vol. 31, c. 227)—we are consulting widely about the substance of the amendment.
