Shapps on anti-strike laws: ‘There has to be a minimum safety level’

Business Secretary Grant Shapps, has announced new legislation which will require several public services to maintain a minimum level of service during industrial action.

Mr Shapps said the new measures are about protecting the public, adding that “there has to be a minimum safety level that people can expect, even on strike days.”

Unions have condemned the move and threatened legal action, while Labour said it would oppose the bill in Parliament.
