HC Deb 18 May 1989 vol 153 c281W
19. Mr. Duffy

To ask the Secretary of State for Northern Ireland what consideration he is giving to a strengthening of the fair employment laws.

Mr. Viggers

The Fair Employment (Northern Ireland) Bill, which was introduced in this House in December last year, has now completed its Committee stage and will be brought before the House for further consideration at any early date. The Bill will strengthen significantly the existing law in Northern Ireland relating to fair employment.
