Women and Equalities Committee: Chair nominations close

10 June 2015

Nominations for Chair of the Women and Equalities Committee closed at 5pm on Wednesday 10 June. Mrs Maria Miller is the sole candidate nominated and will therefore be elected as Chair. The full results of the elections for all committees will be announced on Thursday 18 June.

Mrs Maria Miller said:

"This is an immense privilege. The new Women and Equalities Committee has a vital role and can create real momentum for change. Britain has a proud history of challenging inequity and intolerance but, in any society, there will always be a need to shine a light on discrimination in whatever form it takes. I look forward to working with the Members of the Committee to scrutinise and help improve the effectiveness of Government equality policy."
