To ask the Minister for Women and Equalities, what steps the Government is taking to celebrate the centenary of women being able to vote.
12 October 2017
I was delighted that my Rt hon. Friend, the Chancellor of the Exchequer, announced a £5 million fund to celebrate the centenary of the Representation of the People Act, and I have written to all hon. Members outlining how constituents will access the fund. The hope is that the centenary will build a legacy by educating a new generation about the hard-won right to vote.
