Dawn Butler: In my constituency, 3,699 young people have participated in the new deal, with 1,200 of them obtaining sustainable employment.

Opposition Day — [8th allotted day]: Corporate Boards (Diversity) (28 Oct 2015)

Public Bill Committee: Temporary and Agency Workers (Equal Treatment) Bill: Clause 1 (7 May 2008)

Dawn Butler: Is that not in some respects the point of the Bill, in the sense that the employment agency and  we, under the Equal Pay Act 1970, should be looking at transparency with regard to the pay and conditions of employees to ensure that they are paid a reasonable wage for their job? Is that not part of the premise of the Bill?

Women and Equalities: Workplace Sexual Harassment (22 Feb 2018)

Dawn Butler: We have to be very clear about this. Because the Government repealed section 40 of the Equality Act 2010, there is now no statutory protection over third party harassment. If the Government are committed to protecting women and girls, will they show this by either reinstating section 40 or, at the very least, introducing stronger legislation to ensure protection against third party harassment?

What are the Government doing to expand the Bill on unclaimed assets and the recommendations in it?

Opposition Day: Sub Post-Offices (10 Jan 2007)

Backbench Business (29 Nov 2018)

Dawn Butler: I am glad that the hon. Gentleman almost admitted at the end of his remarks that the two situations are not comparable. Does he not see the difference between essentially forcing women to look and dress a certain way as part of their job to please men, and a person having a job where they take their clothes off for a living?

Oral Answers to Questions — Treasury: Housing Market (1 Mar 2007)

Dawn Butler: Does my right hon. Friend agree that investment in housing and social housing is important to helping people get on to the housing ladder?
