asked the Secretary of State for Employment (1) if he will publish the names of all the trade unions, together with the number of their members, that have so far registered under the Industrial Relations Act since 5th May, 1972;
(2) if he will seek to ascertain, and publish, the names of the trade unions together with the number of their members, that have decided not to register under the Industrial Relations Act;421W
(3) if he will seek to ascertain, and publish, the names of trade unions, and the number of their members, that have not so far registered under the Industrial Relations Act, and which have not yet decided whether to register.
§ Mr. Chichester-Clark
I am informed by the Registrar of Trade Unions and Employers' Associations that the names of the 18 organisations which have registered as trade unions since 5th May, 1972, are as set out below. Information is not yet available about the membership of these organisations. It would not be practicable for my Department to find out exactly how many currently unregistered organisations have decided not to register, since there is nothing to require organisations to inform the Registrar or my Department of such decisions.
