PRESS NOTICE

NEW INQUIRY

Inquiry into UK Employment Regulation

The Trade and Industry Committee announces its intention to conduct an inquiry into UK Employment Regulation.

During the course of its inquiry the Committee will consider issues including:

•  whether the current degree of flexibility is appropriate or desirable, and, if not, what measures the Government should take.

The Committee would welcome written evidence on these or any other related issues by 18 June 2004.  Details of any oral evidence will be announced shortly after that date.

Written evidence

If possible, written evidence should take the form of a memorandum with numbered paragraphs and should be submitted, as a MS Word document, by e-mail to [email protected] with a single hard copy sent to the Clerk at the address above.
