§ Mr. Janner
asked the Secretary of State for Wales what arrangements are in hand to ensure that his 386W Department complies with the monitoring and positive action recommendations of the draft code of the Equal Opportunities Commission following the publication on 9 February 1984 of the "Programme of Action on Women in the Civil Service."
§ Mr. Nicholas Edwards
Existing joint management and trade union machinery is being used at Departmental and national level to review such matters as promotion, training and the incidence of part-time working. A joint management/trade union working party is being set up within my Department to consider the programme of action and its implications. All staff without discrimination are encouraged to attend internal developmental training courses and to make use of training opportunities provided through the Civil Service college.
