HC Deb 08 July 1977 vol 934 cc692-3W
Mr. Nicholas Winterton

asked the Secretary of State for Employment what is the total number of cases investigated by the Advisory, Conciliation and Arbitration Service in which it has recommended that union recognition would be inappropriate; and in how many cases investigated by the Advisory, Conciliation and Arbitration Service union recognition has been recommended when the result of an Advisory, Conciliation and Arbitration Service ballot has shown only a minority to be in favour of union recognition.

Mr. Harold Walker,

pursuant to his reply [Official Report, 7th July 1977], gave the following information:

I am informed by ACAS that seven reports issued under Section 12(7) of the Act by the Service, covering 11 references, have contained no recommendation for recognition The opinions of workers ascertained by the Service under Section 14 of the Act have been about a variety of questions and it is not, therefore, practicable to summarise these opinions in the way requested.
