HC Deb 16 December 1999 vol 341 c239W
Mr. Crausby

To ask the Secretary of State for Trade and Industry what plans he has to amend the law on equal pay. [102724]

Ms Hodge

I have been asked to reply.

We are tackling the gender pay gap through a range of action, including encouraging less gender stereotyping in subject choices and career choices at work. We will ensure the right legislative framework is in place which complies with our European obligations, and we will consult on changes to Tribunal procedures to speed up and simplify equal pay claims.
