§ 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.
