Ex-women's minister can't hear women's voices

Austria's former women's minister has admitted he has a hearing difficulty that means he can't hear women's voices.

Herbert Haupt, who was women's minister for three years and is still an MP, revealed his weakness during a Parliamentary debate.

After Haupt complained he could not understand a female colleague during a debate, the Parliamentary president Andreas Kohl was forced to ask the woman to repeat her statement with a deeper voice.

Haupt admitted that the hearing difficulty meant he could not hear sounds over 3,500 Herz, the range in which many female voices lie.
