Legal Services Bill

Volume 461: debated on Thursday 14 June 2007

To ask the Minister of State, Ministry of Justice what representations her Department has received from trade unions on their exemption from part 3 of the Legal Services Bill. (142330)

We have discussed the Legal Services Bill with those representing both the Trades Union Congress and individual unions. While they have expressed support for the aims of the Legal Services Bill, they have been concerned to ensure that it does not inadvertently restrict trade unions from providing valuable support and assistance to their members.
