Scotland Bill: Clause 26 — Employment support (30 Jun 2015)

Ian Murray: ...our amendments in Committee to press the Government to do something about a particular piece of legislation, and the Government ultimately reject them. Of the 87 amendments that I tabled to the Enterprise and Regulatory Reform Bill, 87 were rejected, although I was delighted that four or five came back as the Government’s own ideas on Report. That is essentially what will happen. The...

Public Bill Committee: Small Business, Enterprise and Employment Bill: Clause 136 - Financial penalty for failure to pay sums ordered by employment tribunal etc (4 Nov 2014)

Ian Murray: ...that I have been making. The Government do need a strategy for dealing with that. It seems a little like déjà vu. Mr Brady, you may be feeling that yourself. Two years ago, when we considered the Enterprise and Regulatory Reform Bill, we had exactly the same debate about employment tribunal redress and the penalties for an aggravated breach. In that instance, an employer could be fined...

Public Bill Committee: Small Business, Enterprise and Employment Bill: Clause 136 - Financial penalty for failure to pay sums ordered by employment tribunal etc (4 Nov 2014)

Ian Murray: ...tribunal, or settlement sums elsewhere. It is an incredibly important provision, and it is something that the Opposition have been looking to achieve for some time in this Parliament. In the Enterprise and Regulatory Reform Bill, the Government pushed through a number of measures. In Committee on that Bill, the Minister’s predecessor, the right hon. Member for North Norfolk (Norman...

Public Bill Committee: Small Business, Enterprise and Employment Bill: Clause 135 - Protected disclosures: reporting requirements (4 Nov 2014)

Ian Murray: ...or types of malpractice. We can see that these include some very serious categories of malpractice, which people may wish to raise under these whistleblowing regulations. Critically, under the Enterprise and Regulatory Reform Bill—the Committee for which Mr Brady also had the unmitigated pleasure of chairing—the Government also added the  public interest test. If, therefore, an...

Medical Innovation (No. 2): Clause 36 — Duty to Provide Membership Audit Certificate (11 Sep 2013)

Ian Murray: ...recall the now infamous Beecroft report, which would take this country’s employment rights and health and safety landscapes back to the era of Queen Victoria. When Beecroft appeared before the Enterprise and Regulatory Reform Bill Committee last year, he said that he had absolutely no evidence to back up such claims on compensated no-fault dismissal and the abolition of the Gangmasters...

Medical Innovation (No. 2): Clause 36 — Duty to Provide Membership Audit Certificate (11 Sep 2013)

Ian Murray: ..., for that ruling on an important point of order. I remind my hon. Friend, the Chair of the Political and Constitutional Reform Committee, that other stuff has been bolted on to Bills, including the Enterprise and Regulatory Reform Bill—disgracefully, the agricultural wages board was abolished at the last minute in the House of Lords without any political debate in this House. Before the...

Medical Innovation (No. 2): Clause 36 — Duty to Provide Membership Audit Certificate (11 Sep 2013)

Ian Murray: ...days and the hundreds of e-mails that all Members have received from their constituents show how much of a dog’s breakfast the Bill is. It is in good company, following the hotch-potch of the Enterprise and Regulatory Reform Bill and the total shambles that the House witnessed during the passage of the Growth and Infrastructure Bill. Part 3 of the Bill before us provides wide-ranging new...

Growth and Infrastructure Bill (Programme) (No. 2): Clause 8 — Electronic communications code: the need to promote growth (17 Dec 2012)

Ian Murray: ...are bringing forward this proposal and are wholeheartedly supporting it. The Business Secretary is not here, and the Business Secretary was not here for the Third Reading or vote of his own Enterprise and Regulatory Reform Bill, in which provisions affecting the rights of workers were pushed through. If the Liberal Democrats do not see that this is Beecroft by the back door, they should...

Public Bill Committee: Groceries Code Adjudicator Bill [Lords]: Clause 5 - Investigation reports (11 Dec 2012)

Ian Murray: ...in the supply chain, and ultimately on consumers”. That is the thrust of the amendment, which seeks to give the adjudicator the ability to pass information on to the OFT or, as it will be once the Enterprise and Regulatory Reform Bill becomes law, the competition and markets authority. Open and vigorous competition is good for consumers, because it results in lower prices, new products...

Public Bill Committee: Groceries Code Adjudicator Bill [Lords]: Schedule 1 - The Adjudicator (11 Dec 2012)

Ian Murray: ...wishes to have a pre-appointment hearing, and also that it considers the adjudicator’s role to be worthy of its scrutiny. I do not think that the BIS Committee tabled such an amendment to the Enterprise and Regulatory Reform Bill with regards to the Competition and Markets Authority chair, so it must consider pre-appointment scrutiny of the adjudicator to be as important, if not more...

Public Bill Committee: Groceries Code Adjudicator Bill [Lords]: Schedule 1 - The Adjudicator (11 Dec 2012)

Ian Murray: ...forward. Before the Minister pops up and says it is all very well talking about the Governor of the Bank of England and the members of the Office for Budget Responsibility, I mention again the Enterprise and Regulatory Reform Bill, which has just gone through this House and is in the other place. The specifications in that Bill are to merge the Office of Fair Trading and the Competition...

Public Bill Committee: Groceries Code Adjudicator Bill [Lords]: Schedule 1 - The Adjudicator (11 Dec 2012)

Ian Murray: ....” He concluded: “I hope this explanation makes the position clearer”. We are fond of the Minister’s predecessor and we spent many heady days and nights with him in Committee debating the Enterprise and Regulatory Reform Bill clause by clause and point by point. We were so fond of him that we bought him a copy of “Fifty Shades of Grey” at the end of proceedings, because it had...

Public Bill Committee: Growth and Infrastructure Bill: Clause 23 - Employee owners (6 Dec 2012)

Ian Murray: ...is sacked under the proper gross misconduct framework that the business has put in place for a grievance procedure? Given the limits proposed in respect of unfair dismissal compensation under the Enterprise and Regulatory Reform Bill and the figures for average recovery, it is highly unlikely that shares worth £50,000 will ever be involved. They are more likely to be used as a form of...

Public Bill Committee: Growth and Infrastructure Bill: Clause 23 - Employee owners (6 Dec 2012)

Ian Murray: ...be him phoning the Minister now to apologise for what he said. Three weeks before the hon. Gentleman became the Minister with responsibility for employee relations, he said of the proposals in the Enterprise and Regulatory Reform Bill that anything that undermines consumer confidence in this country, and therefore damages the economy, is “crazy.” It is worth reminding the Committee yet...

Public Bill Committee: Growth and Infrastructure Bill: Clause 23 - Employee owners (6 Dec 2012)

Ian Murray: ...be dealt with through the proper channels such as unfair dismissal or constructive dismissal proceedings. The Government have changed many rules in respect of unfair dismissal measures under the Enterprise and Regulatory Reform Bill, but if it can be shown that there is a problem with the scheme not being seen to be voluntary, we want such a position to be dealt with. When the Chancellor...

Public Bill Committee: Growth and Infrastructure Bill: Clause 23 - Employee owners (6 Dec 2012)

Ian Murray: ...or a requirement for independent legal and/or financial advice, for employees thinking about going down this route. There is a connection between this measure and some of the clauses in the Enterprise and Regulatory Reform Bill, because the new settlement agreements allow for an employer and an employee to have a combination of  without prejudice, protected conversations about certain...

Public Bill Committee: Growth and Infrastructure Bill: Clause 23 - Employee owners (6 Dec 2012)

Ian Murray: ...Conservative Government, aided and abetted by their listening partners, the Liberal Democrats, are paying lip service to the idea that they are standing up for employee rights. We saw that with the Enterprise and Regulatory Reform Bill, we saw it with the changes to the qualification period on unfair dismissal, which was put through by statutory instrument, we saw it with the removal of...

Public Bill Committee: Growth and Infrastructure Bill: Clause 7 - Electronic communications code: the need to promote growth (29 Nov 2012)

Ian Murray: ...by the DCMS regarding broadband. Why does the Bill not mention it? It is not clear what Government policy really is—little wonder in such a rag-bag of a Bill. The Government have form, because the Enterprise and Regulatory Reform Bill was also well trailed as a rag-bag of a Bill. In their haste and panic for growth, the Government pulled policies off the shelves of the Department for...

Business of the House: Growth and Infrastructure Bill (5 Nov 2012)

Ian Murray: ...Dorset and North Poole (Annette Brooke). I look forward to them joining us later in the Lobby. Today’s debate has been important. We meet only weeks since the Third Reading of the Government’s Enterprise and Regulatory Reform Bill, which they heralded as their flagship for growth. Indeed, the Secretary of State for Business, Innovation and Skills said that the measures in that Bill...

Business of the House: Growth and Infrastructure Bill (5 Nov 2012)

Ian Murray: ...the new concept of an employee owner, but not one Government Member has raised this issue during the debate. I think that perhaps says it all and reflects the debate we had on Third Reading of the Enterprise and Regulatory Reform Bill. On the Opposition side, we are strongly in favour of employee ownership, but coupling it with slashing employment rights is contradictory and...
