Equal pay for women

Campaign continues both in Westminster and Northumberland, where I still have many local residents who have claims against Northumberland County Council, who paid local women lesser salaries for years when compared to their male counterparts. I raised this in the House of Commons again yesterday, calling for a debate - as reported in today's Journal. This comes on the back of a groundbreaking decision in the Supreme Court this week which held that the problem may have been much more widespread than just the actions of local authorities.
