    That is a completely different question. That is asked to find out if you are ambitious or not.

    That is quite a different question to, "Do you plan to have children in the next 5 years." which in breach of the Equalities Act 2010.
    It’s not just to find out if you are ambitious though, it is to find out what your ambitions are. And if you are comparing a man who intends on rising through the ranks quickly to a woman who wants a steady job and intends to take a fair bit of time off in the next five years to start a family, which one of those would you say is more ambitious?

    It depends. You're ambitious man may jump ship with your client list where as your steady mum may well be loyal for many years. Who do you hire?

    The point is that as our population ages, immigration slows and increased life expectancy sees people have several careers, employers are going to have to adapt. There is a mass of untapped talent out there in the form of family women. The companies who can accommodate these people are the ones that will win in the long run. People are fed up of being treated with contempt by business and that goes for men and women.
