§ Mr. Skinner
To ask the Secretary of State for Employment whether he will consider introducing legislation to provide travel time payments to workers who have long distances to travel back and forth to their workplace; and if he will make a statement.
§ Mr. Nicholls
No. To do so would put an unacceptable burden on employers and discourage the creation of new jobs. This is a matter for employers and employees to settle on a voluntary basis.
