Oliver Letwin MP, West Dorset voted not to require an assurer of a Trade Union to report on a membership audit certificate if the union has taken all reasonable steps to ensure their membership register is up to date.

The majority of MPs voted not require an assurer of a Trade Union to report on a membership audit certificate if the union has taken all reasonable steps to ensure their membership register is up to date (subject to matters outside of the union's control).

  • Amendment 112, page 40, line 19, at end insert—
  • ‘(c) Whether, in the assurer’s opinion, the trade union has taken all reasonable steps to ensure their membership register is up to date taking into account—
  • (i) that the union should not be held responsible for inaccuracies in cases where, in the assurer’s opinion, an employer is not sharing timely and accurate details, and
  • (ii) any other aspects that, in the assurer’s opinion, have been out of the control of the trade union in the maintenance of the membership register.
