HAGUE CALL FOR WOMEN SOLDIERS QUALIFIED

A spokesman for William Hague has sought to qualify the Tory leader's support for women to be allowed on the front line in an armed conflict. Mr Hague told students that women could be "very effective" on the front line. The view was at odds with Tory policy. Shadow defence secretary Iain Duncan Smith has described such a scenario as "political correctness gone mad". But the spokesman said Mr Hague was giving "general view about the issues".
