Sex Discrimination (Clubs and Other Private Associations) Bill — Discrimination: Private Clubs — 15 Oct 2004 at 14:15

I beg to move amendment No. 3, in page 3, line 35 at end insert-

'29E Unreasonable works and alterations

Question put, That the amendment be made:-

The Bill under debate required members clubs that were previously single sex to become open to both sexes. As part of this, it required the clubs to carry out works to make the facilities appropriate for both sexes. This amendment was designed to make sure that clubs didn't have to carry out "Unreasonable works". Those voting Aye in the division agreed to the amendment.

The House divided: Ayes 7, Noes 20.
