THE TRADE UNIONS had been very forthcoming in the matter of women bus drivers in London, said Government spokesman Lord Garnsworthy, when Peers protested last week at the small number of women employed on transport in the capital.
London Transport now had its first woman driver and three others were training, noted Lord Garnsworthy.
This was described as "totally unsatisfactory" by Baroness Seear, while Baroness Summerskill observed that "one swallow does not make a summer".
Lord Garnsworthy agreed that the public services should set an example of nonsex discrimination and employ more women.
