HC Deb 18 July 2001 vol 372 c262W
Dr. Gibson

To ask the Secretary of State for Trade and Industry what plans she has to review the career structures of women in science. [1732]

Mr. Wilson

The Department is currently undertaking a review of women's scientific careers as outlined in "Excellence and Opportunity", the 2000 Science and Innovation White Paper. The study has interviewed women in the public and private sector who have both returned to a scientific career and who have left and wish to return.

The study is due to report at the end of the summer, at which time we will consult stakeholders in the development of an action plan. DTI and DFES will both be involved in this process.
