Main content

Follow this EDM by:


That this House notes the existence of full-time Trades Union officials whose salaries are paid by the taxpayer; further notes that such officials have been termed `Pilgrims' by the media in reference to Jane Pilgrim from UNISON, who criticised the Government whilst claiming to be a nurse, although it was subsequently shown that she did not practise, but instead claimed an NHS salary to work for UNISON; believes that this practice is deplorable; further notes that it is not known how many Pilgrims there are in Britain; further believes that each one deprives the taxpayer of valuable frontline services; and resolves to continue to work towards a ban on Trades Union Pilgrims.
