HC Deb 24 July 1987 vol 120 c669W
Mr. Alton

asked the Secretary of State for Employment what plans he has to provide protection for AIDS carriers against unfair dismissal by employers; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. Nicholls

Under the existing employment protection legislation, most employees, including AIDS sufferers, who believe they have been dismissed unfairly may complain to an industrial tribunal, providing they have completed two years' continuous employment with their employer.
