§ Mr. Arthur Lewis
asked the Secretary of State for Employment whether, in his review of the law relating to picketing, he has had discussions with the Trades Union Congress; and whether he will make a statement.
§ Mr. Chichester-Clark
No discussions have taken place with the TUC or any other body. The Government has already undertaken that no changes in the law on picketing will be proposed without consultation with the CBI and TUC.
