Labour blast Coalition on gender pay gap scheme

Just four out of 200 companies which signed up to a coalition scheme to combat gender pay gaps have revealed their results, a parliamentary question by Labour has revealed.

The ‘Think, Act, Report’ initiative was launched three years ago by Home Secretary Theresa May to encourage businesses to report their employee pay and improve transparency on workplace equality.

Two of the four companies who have released results showed different pay grades for males and females.

The Shadow Women and Equalities Minister Gloria De Piero claimed that nearly £100,000 of taxpayer’s money had been spent, with few results.

Nick Clegg recently announced that, under a Liberal Democrat government, he would force companies to publish pay gap information.

But Ms De Piero said that Mr Clegg was announcing this to cover up the failure of the 'Think, Act, Report' initative.

"The Lib Dems have had four years in government to deliver this. They even have a Lib Dem minister in charge of the department responsible. Instead their 'groundbreaking voluntary approach' has been a total flop," Ms De Piero said.


Ed Miliband has given one third of junior shadow roles to new MPs. High profile appointments include Chuka Umunna, Jack Dromey and former TV journalist Gloria de Piero.


Labour MP Gloria de Piero is leading calls to cut an annual £155m bill paid by the taxpayer to send the children of Britain's military to private schools. Of the 6,000 service personnel who qualified for the benefit last year, 40 were privates, whereas 3,500 were captains, majors, colonels, brigadiers or generals.
