HC Deb 11 June 1985 vol 80 c397W
10. Mr. Martin

asked the Secretary of State for Employment if he has any proposals to put to his European Economic Community counterparts to improve democracy in the work place.

Mr. Peter Bottomley

We believe that Community-wide action would be inappropriate. Within the United Kingdom we are firmly committed to an effective voluntary approach to employee involvement and participation.

30. Dr. Godman

asked the Secretary of State for Employment what steps he has taken to encourage progress in worker participation under section 1 of the Employment Act 1982.

Mr. Peter Bottomley

I refer the hon. Member to my reply to my hon. Friend the Member for Lincoln (Mr. Carlisle) on 10 June 1985.
