§ Mr. Richard Wainwright
asked the Secretary of State for Employment and Productivity (1) how many prosecutions there have been under any section of the Contracts of Employment Act, 1963, since the date of its enactment; and how many convictions have resulted therefrom;
(2) how many successful legal actions for damages, approximately, have been taken under the Contracts of Employment Act, 1963, since the date of its enactment.
§ Mr. Harold Walker
We have no information as to the number of prosecutions prior to 6th December, 1965, under the provisions of the Contracts of Employment Act relating to written statements of terms of employment. Since that date, when jurisdiction over these provisions was transferred to Industrial Tribunals, 436 cases have been referred to Industrial Tribunals.
We have no information as to the number of actions for damages successful or unsuccessful, under the provisions of the Act as to periods of notice.
