HC Deb 13 April 1994 vol 241 c165W
Dr. Lynne Jones

To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department, pursuant to his answer of 2 March,Official Report, column 737, if he will make a statement on the automatic redundancy entitlement of DTELS staff who do not consent to a variance in staff severance terms; and how long is the period after the sale in which National Transcommunications has confirmed that it will not be seeking to discuss and agree changes to staff terms.

Mr. Charles Wardle

If National Transcommunications Ltd. varies or attempts to vary staff severance terms without the consent of DTELS staff, the normal legal remedies will be available to those staff. I have no further knowledge of National Transcommunication Ltd.'s intentions regarding conditions of service. This is a matter for the company and DTELS staff.
