asked the Secretary of State for Employment which of the trade unions required to file their annual returns by 1st June under Section 11 of the Trade Union and Labour Relations Act 1974 had not done so by 1st August; what proportion they formed of the unions required to file their returns; what reminders they have received; and what steps it is proposed to take to ensure their compliance with Section 11.
I understand from the Registrar of Friendly Societies that the annual returns of 132 trade unions, listed under Section 8 of the Trade Union and Labour Relations Act 1974 and required to send returns to the registrar before 1st June 1975, had not been received by 1st August 1975. These 132 unions represent 31·7 per cent. of listed unions. Each of these unions has been sent a reminder letter by the registrar drawing attention to its failure to furnish a return.The registrar proposes to send a further letter to those unions which have not submitted a return, drawing attention, where appropriate, to the fact that refusal or wilful neglect to furnish a return is an offence under the Act.
Listed trade unions required to send annual returns to the Registrar before 1st June 1975 whose returns had not been received at the Registry of Friendly Societies by 1st August 1975.
