The Strikes (Minimum Service Levels) Bill is the Government's response to the widespread industrial action recently seen across public services, including transport, schools and the NHS. But the legislation is fraught with problems - not least because it skips over the question of what a minimum service level actually is, says consultant editor Darren Newman.
The Retained EU Law (Revocation and Reform) Bill, which seemed to promise a "bonfire" of EU laws at the end of this year, is currently making its way through Parliament - and drawing headlines as it does so.
In the current political climate, it seems foolish to make predictions about the Government's future policy in relation to employment law. But amidst widespread speculation about a "bonfire of rights", it is worth looking at what the Government has so far said and done that might indicate the direction of travel, according to consultant editor Darren Newman.
