§ 67. Mr. Eastham
asked the Secretary of State for Employment whether Her Majesty's Government intend to reconsider their policy towards the exclusion of trade unions from certain places such as the Government communications headquarters, Cheltenham, in the light of comments by the International Labour Organisation.
§ Mr. Tom King
No. Our action at GCHQ was consistent with our obligations under International Labour Organisation conventions and we do not intend to change our policy; nor do we intend extending the measures in force at GCHQ beyond those agencies whose primary functions are concerned with security and intelligence.
