The head of the Equal Opportunities Commission has urged the government to take a firmer lead in promoting greater gender equality in the workplace by insisting that Whitehall departments and their suppliers carry out pay audits.

The Financial Times (p4) reports that the call came yesterday from EOC head Julie Mellor on the eve of today's 30th anniversary of the Equal Pay Act.

Ms Mellor said: 'The biggest step that the government could take might not even require legislation. It would be to set standards and encourage action that would prevent a problem of inequality arising rather than wait for the enforcement mechanism to deal with it on an individual basis.'
