Oral Answers to Questions — Treasury
George Osborne (Chancellor of the Exchequer, HM Treasury; Tatton, Conservative)
We need to reform the labour market, which is why, as my hon. Friend will know, we have this month extended the qualifying period for unfair dismissal cases from one to two years. That has been welcomed and will encourage people to take on new employees. We also have a call for evidence on compensated no-fault dismissal. I have no doubt that she will make a submission to that call for evidence.
