Infrastructure Minister Nichola Mallon has written to Assembly Speaker Alex Maskey, urging him to consider bringing forward proposals for maternity leave for female politicians.

The SDLP deputy leader is calling for the barriers for women to public life to be removed and for an end to gender inequalities across the board.

Ms Mallon’s letter comes on the back of a vote in Westminster to extend maternity provision for female Ministers and MPs, which was supported by SDLP MPs.
