We need action on gender pay gap, not Theresa May's warm words

Responding to Theresa May's call on smaller companies to voluntarily publish their gender pay gap, Liberal Democrat Deputy Leader Jo Swinson said:

"It was the Liberal Democrats in government who ensured large companies have to report their gender pay gaps.

"If the Prime Minister is serious about wanting more companies to publish their pay gaps, we need action not warm words.

"Theresa May should introduce penalties, and name and shame companies who don't comply.

"At the last count, fewer than 1% of large employers had published their gender pay gap, six months into the reporting year."
