My right hon. Friend has consulted both the Confederation of British Industry and the Institute of Directors on all the working papers we have published on our proposals for changing the law on industrial relations.

My right hon. Friend will be meeting representatives of the Institute of Directors again later this month to discuss further points it has raised about the law on industrial relations.
