Gender Equality

Volume 455: debated on Tuesday 16 January 2007

To ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer what plans he has to ensure that (a) equality and (b) gender equality is built into the 2007 comprehensive spending review; and if he will make a statement. (114860)

Guidance to Departments for the 2007 comprehensive spending review has emphasised the Government’s commitment to our long-term goal of ensuring fairness and opportunity for all. This commitment will be reflected in both the allocation of resources and the Public Service Agreements that will be announced in the Spending Review White Paper. In addition, Departments’ spending plans for the years 2008-09 to 2010-11 will reflect existing and forthcoming legislation relating to race, age, disability and gender.
