§ Mr. Brotherton
asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department, in the light of the statement of the chairman of the Equal Opportunities Commission in the July issue of "EOC News" that the Commission was accountable to him, if he will now answer questions from hon. Members on the activities of the Commission.
§ Dr. Summerskill
My right hon. Friend has always answered, and will continue to answer, Questions on those matters for which he has responsibility under the Sex Discrimination Act 1975, which established the Equal Opportunities Commission, but the Commission is responsible for the day-to-day conduct of its affairs.
