HC Deb 17 March 1983 vol 39 c243W
Mr. Nicholas Winterton

asked the Secretary of State for Social Services whether, in implementing the new statutory sickness pay regulations, the Government will consider making further concessions to small employers.

Mr. Rossi

We have no plans to offer further concessions on statutory sick pay to small employers. Once the scheme is in operation we shall keep its operation under review, particularly its impact on small employers.
