Interpretation And Other Supplementary Provisions

Amendment made: No. 1, in page 3, line 36, at end insert—

'(1A) Where a person may not be considered for appointment or election to an office in a trade union unless he is a member of the union, or of a particular branch or section of the union or of one of a number of particular branches or sections of the union, nothing in section 1 applies to anything done for the purpose of securing compliance with that condition although as holder of the office he would be employed by the union.
For this purpose an "office" means any position—
  • (a) by virtue of which the holder is an "official" within the meaning of section 30(1) of the Trade Union and Labour Relations Act 1974, or
  • (b) in relation to which the duty in section 1 of the Trade Union Act 1984 (duty to hold elections) applies.'.—[Mr. Eggar.]
