§ Mr. William Wilson
asked the Secretary of State for Employment in view of the fact that many employers of sales representatives have not supplied a written statement of the particulars of employment as required by Section 20 of the Industrial Relations Act 1971, if he will take action to bring to employers' notice their obligations under this section.
§ Mr. Chichester-Clark
My Department carried out a large publicity exercise early last year to draw employers' attention to their obligations under the Contracts of Employment Act as amended by the Industrial Relations Act. Manpower advisers and other officers of my Department have brought these requirements to employers' notice at every appropriate opportunity and they are being asked to continue this work.
