HC Deb 19 July 1977 vol 935 c513W
75. Sir D. Walker-Smith

asked the Secretary of State for Employment whether he will introduce legislation to amend Section 15 of the Trade Union and Labour Relations Act 1974 so as to restrict participation in picketing, and the rights conferred on participants by law, to persons picketing at their place, or former place, of employment.

Mr. Harold Walker

I refer the hon. Member to my right hon. Friend's reply to the hon. Member for Cleveland and Whitby (Mr. Brittan) on 12th July, which set out our intentions with regard to the law on picketing.
