asked the Paymaster General what recent representations he has received concerning his Green Paper, "Trade Unions and Their Members."

I have received 105 representations on the Green Paper, "Trade Unions and Their Members" in the period up to today, including comments from employers, Trade Unions, various other representative organisations, and individuals.


asked the Paymaster General when he next proposes to meet trade union leaders to discuss his recently published Green Paper, "Trade Unions and Their Members."

The TUC have told me that they plan to seek a meeting in due course but have not yet done so. The Scottish TUC has also asked for a meeting. I will of course be happy to meet both groups when they are able to suggest convenient dates.
