To ask the Secretary of State for Business, Innovation and Skills with reference to the Prime Minister's contribution on 20 November 2013, Official Report, column 1224, if he will place the terms of reference for the review into union intimidation and a list of members of the review body in the Library; and what meetings (a) Ministers and (b) officials in his Department have had with (i) the Trades Union Congress, (ii) the Confederation of British Industry and (iii) other organisations in connection with the review to date.
The full details of the review will be announced in due course, once they have been finalised. I will be happy to place the terms of reference and details of those undertaking the review in the libraries of the House, once they have been announced. Ministers and officials in the Department meet routinely with the Trades Union Congress (TUC), Confederation of British Industry (CBI) and other representative bodies. Whilst we have not held meetings to specifically discuss this review of industrial disputes, there has been some discussion of the review with the TUC and CBI, as part of our routine engagement.
