A government minister says more must be done to facilitate breast feeding mothers in the workplace.

Minister of Labour, Colin Jordan was speaking at the Breast Feeding and Child Nutrition Foundation's stakeholder meeting program.

The Foundation has released a draft breastfeeding workplace policy.

Among other things, it calls on employers to provide access to a lactation room, milk expression breaks and breastfeeding equipment.

Although government is not in the process of making the policy law, Minister Jordan is calling on local employers to comply.
