Employment Tribunals

Volume 620: debated on Tuesday 24 January 2017

22. When she plans to publish her Department’s review of the introduction of employment tribunal fees. (908361)

The Prime Minister claims she wants to protect workers’ rights. Is not the Government’s fear in publishing this report that it is going to demonstrate that the introduction of fees has negated that process? The Minister earlier said that publication is “imminent”; his predecessor said last July it was “soon”. Can he define the terms and give us a date?

The hon. Gentleman will not have long to wait; it is genuinely imminent—but it has taken longer than we had hoped.
