HC Deb 02 February 1993 vol 218 cc159-60W
Mr. Peter Bottomley

To ask the Secretary of State for Employment which employers' associations or employers have asked for trade unions to be required to review members' written authorisations to deduction at source of union subscriptions every three years.

Mr. Michael Forsyth

My right hon. Friend the Secretary of State has received no such representations. Under proposals in the Trade Union Reform and Employment Rights Bill it is employers who will be required to seek renewed consent to check-off deductions from their employees every three years.
