asked the Secretary of State for Employment what consultations he has so far had with employers' organisations and trade associations on the subject of the Employment Protection Bill; what the response of those he has consulted has been; and whether he will make a statement.

A large number of employers' organisations and trade associations sent in comments on the consultative document. I have myself met representatives of the Confederation of British Industry and the Engineering Employers' Federation and my Department has had discussions with these and with several other employers' organisations All these representations, which cover a wide range of topics, are being considered along with others received.
