New Clause 9 - Statements on Bills affecting Trade Union political funds

Part of Trade Union Bill – in a Public Bill Committee at 2:45 pm on 27 October 2015.

Alert me about debates like this

‘(1) A Minister of the Crown in charge of a Bill in either House of Parliament must, before Second Reading of the Bill, if the Bill contains provisions which are likely to affect the machinery of Trade Union political funds:

(a) make a statement to the effect that the Bill has been introduced with the agreement of the leaders of all the political parties represented in the House of Commons, or

(b) make a statement to the effect that the Bill has been introduced without the agreement of the leaders of all the political parties represented in the House of Commons

as the case may be.

(2) The statement must be in writing and be published in such manner as the Minister making it considers appropriate.”—(Chris Stephens.)
