HC Deb 05 August 1975 vol 897 cc419-20
Mr. Booth

I beg to move Amendment No. 190, in page 86, line 1, after 'above', insert 'or Part IV of this Act, '.

Any provision, agreement or contract of employment which would limit a person's right under the Bill is made void by Clause 106(1), save for one exception in subsection (2) to take into account the fact that the Secretary of State can set aside the guarantee payments provision in those cases where trade unions and employers jointly represent to him to his satisfaction that they have come to a better collective agreement.

New Clause 98 requires a similar exception in respect of collective agreements on redundancy. That is the reason for the amendment. If I indicate that Amendment No. 198 is purely consequential on the insertion of new Clause 98, that might also help us to make progress.

Amendment agreed to.

Amendment made: No. 191, in page 86, line 2, after '28', insert 'or, as the cat-e may be, section 98'.—[Mr. Booth.]
