Work and Families Bill — New Clause 1 — Administration of statutory leave payments — 18 Jan 2006 at 14:15

I beg to move, That the clause be read a Second time.

Although we strongly support the purposes of the Bill as a package, we must recognise its impact on employers, especially small employers. It is incumbent on us all to ensure that its impact on employers is kept to a minimum. That has clearly been the Government's view, which they have expressed at various times.

Question put, That the clause be read a Second time:-

The House divided: Ayes 212, Noes 292.
