HC Deb 26 March 1998 vol 309 c220W
Mr. Syms

To ask the President of the Board of Trade if she will make a statement on Government policy on trade union recognition in the workplace. [34911]

Mr. Ian McCartney

The Government believe that unions should be recognised where a majority of the relevant workforce vote in a ballot for the union to represent them. We will set out our proposals in a White Paper in the first half of this year.
