The petition has got the wrong end of the stick on this one...

The white paper (and that is what this still is) seeks to amend the civil law - the sexual discrimination act, by extending it to include 'maternity' which they are defining as being up to 26 weeks post birth.

I hardly think the shop owner is going to fill in a written statement that the Mum is being removed because of breastfeeding. Will the Mum get legal aid to pursue this claim?
