Holding answer received on 27 April 2016

The Trade Union Act 2016 is about employment and industrial relations law, which are reserved matters. The Act will apply to public sector officials across Great Britain in the same manner, and therefore no specific assessment has been made of its applicability to officials of the devolved administrations.
