In May 2012, the Scottish Affairs Committee heard evidence from anti-blacklisting campaigner and former MP, Maria Fyfe, on blacklisting of workers, particularly in the construction industry, for supposed political or union affiliations. 

The inquiry has been investigating the extent of the problem of blacklisting within Scotland, and what is being done to eradicate it.

The Committee’s inquiry so far has raised a series of complex questions, particularly about compensation, which the Committee will consider in the next phase of the inquiry before making its final recommendations to Government.
