58. Mrs. Roe

asked the Paymaster General what information he has as to how many pre-strike ballots have taken place since the implementation of the Trade Union Act 1984.

Mr. Kenneth Clarke

Our Department is aware of about 160 pre-strike ballots believed to comply with the provisions of the Trade Union Act 1984 but there will have been other ballots which we do not know about.
