To ask the Minister for Women what plans she has to propose legislation against sex discrimination against women in private members' clubs. [103907]

I welcome the Sex Discrimination (Clubs and Other Associations) Bill, introduced by my hon. Friend the Member for Gloucester (Mr. Dhanda) on 4 February 2003. There is no question that the inequalities which persist in some mixed-sex clubs are out of date and contrary to this Government's principles of opportunity for all.While I can make no commitment on parliamentary time, this is a matter which we will keep under review.
