HC Deb 18 March 1975 vol 888 c357W
7. Mr. Tebbit

asked the Secretary of State for Employment if he will introduce legislation to encourage the reorganisation of trade unions so as to facilitate the avoidance of inter-union disputes and of disputes between groups of workers within individual unions which result in industrial action.

Mr. Booth:

The Trade Union (Amalgamations etc.) Act 1964 facilitated amalgamations between unions and I see no need for further legislation.
