HC Deb 17 October 1995 vol 264 c239W
Mrs. Ann Clwyd

To ask the Secretary of State for Education and Employment what proposals she has to promote the equal treatment of women. [35891]

Mrs. Gillan

The Government will continue to promote the interests of women at work, in education and beyond, and to promote effective equality of opportunity at work. In addition to a strong legislative base, this policy has meant that the United Kingdom has one of the lowest rates of women's unemployment in the European Union, and that the gap between men's and women's earnings continues to narrow.
