More diversity in public appointments

Published: Mon, 14 Jul 2008 18:07:34

Harriet Harman, Minister for Women & Equality, and Ed Miliband, Cabinet Office Minister, announced new measures to increase the number of women, disabled people, and black, Asian and minority ethnic people appointed to the boards of public bodies, so that they reflect the wider population.
