HC Deb 12 June 1961 vol 642 cc9-10W
78. Mr. Charles A. Howell

asked the Minister of Labour if he will consider introducing legislation to make it an offence for any employer to take any action likely to prevent an employee from following his trade or profession with another employer at the expiration of a contract of service.

Mr. Hare

Under existing law the general position is that a provision in a contract of service which unreasonably restricts a worker's activities after the end of his employment cannot be enforced.
