William Wragg: I consider health and safety to be a union duty rather than a union activity, so I agree with that.

My second concern relates to the possibility of the use of agency workers to cover striking workers. I agree with...

Bill Presented — Immigration Bill: Courts and Tribunal Services (England and Wales) (17 Sep 2015)

William Wragg: On the point about local justice being seen to be done, a magistrate put it very succinctly to me—not wanting to sound like a character from “The League of Gentlemen”—when they said, “It is important in order to preserve the long-standing principles of local justice being administered by local people within that local area.” Does that neatly summarise what my hon. Friend is trying...
