Crime and Courts Bill — Clause 12 — National Crime Agency — No Strike Provisions — 13 Mar 2013 at 16:23
The majority of MPs voted for a ban on anyone, for example a trade union, from calling a strike at the National Crime Agency and allowing the Home Secretary to seek an injunction to stop any threatened strike.
MPs were considering the Crime and Courts Bill. The amendment rejected in this vote was:
- Amendment: 95, page 10, line 15, leave out Clause 12.
Clause 12 titled NCA officers with operational powers: labour relations sought to prevent the Director General of the National Crime Agency or officers of the agency from being induced to strike (for example by a trade union).
Clause 12 also allows the Home Secretary to seek an injunction restraining a threatened strike by NCA officers holding operational powers.
