Criminal Justice and Immigration Bill — Preventing prison officers from taking industrial action — 9 Jan 2008 at 14:30

Jamie Reed MP, Copeland voted with the majority (Aye).

The majority of MPs voted to strengthen the Criminal Justice and Public Order Act 1994[1] in its prohibition against anyone inducing a prison officer to withhold his services as an officer (ie strike).

The change widened this to apply to "any industrial action"[2]

This was prompted by wildcat strikes the previous summer.[3]
