International Women's Day debate

Help

Equalities Minister Jane Hutt announced £105,000 to fund specialist discrimination case workers for a further six months in Flintshire Citizen's Advice Bureau, Newport Citizen's Advice Bureau and Race Equality First on 5 March 2013.

The funding, which will run from April to September 2013, was announced by the minister during a debate on International Women's Day.

"Advice funding in Wales has seen major cuts over the past few years from the UK Government," said Ms Hutt.

"With the imminent further significant cuts to legal aid funding announced by the UK Government, access to free and accessible discrimination advice faces a further threat.

"The funding I am announcing today will help to give people who face discrimination of any kind somewhere to go to for free help and advice."

Members united to call for more women in public life and for more recognition for women's rights and women's work.

The motion as amended was approved.
