HL Deb 17 March 2005 vol 670 c141WA
Lord Maginnis of Drumglass

asked Her Majesty's Government:

Whether they will place in the Library of the House a copy of the gender action plan for the Police Service of Northern Ireland; and what is their assessment of how, in accordance with that plan, they will ensure that the specific childcare arrangements proposed in Recommendation 123 of the Patten report will be achieved. [HL1504]

Baroness Amos

The Equality and Diversity Unit of the PSNI will arrange for a number of copies of the gender action plan to be sent to the Library of the House as requested.

Work in the areas of childcare arrangements and flexible working is ongoing within the PSNI. In line with Recommendations 16 and 17 of the gender action plan, a number of meetings are currently being held with interested stakeholders to determine what specific policy changes need to be implemented.
