HC Deb 17 December 1992 vol 216 c396W
Mr. Devlin

To ask the Secretary of State for Employment (1) if she will introduce safeguards and protection for betting shop employees who do not wish to change contracts in the event of a relaxation of betting shop hours;

(2) if she will introduce regulations to prevent exploitation of betting shop employees by employers who refuse to allow a choice between new contracts of employment and existing ones.

Mr. McLoughlin

Terms and conditions of employment are in general a matter for employers and employees, and it is always open to either party to a contract of employment to seek to renegotiate its terms.

All employees have protection against unilateral changes being made to their contracts of employment.
