Nick Clegg and our Edwardian Maternity Laws

I actually like the proposed change to maternity rights that were announced today.

But who on earth was it that advised Nick Clegg to call our current system Edwardian?  I believe the first paid maternity rights were not introduced until 1975 - an Edwardian system would be one with absolutely no rights at all!
