Transparency of Lobbying, Non-Party Campaigning and Trade Union Administration Bill — Clause 36 — Provision of Union Membership Audit Certificates to Regulator — 11 Sep 2013 at 17:00
The majority of MPs voted to require a register of the names and addresses of members of a trade union to be sent to the regulator, the Certification Officer, for each annual reporting period rather than just in the event of a complaint.
MPs were considering the Transparency of Lobbying, Non-Party Campaigning and Trade Union Administration Bill. The amendment rejected in this vote was:
- Amendment 103, page 37, line 39, leave out
- ‘in relation to each reporting period’
- and insert
- (a) a formal complaint is received by the Certification Officer that would result in the Certification Officer requiring a membership audit in relation to the reporting period when the complaint was verified and
- (b) the Certification Officer determined that a certificate was required.’
The paragraph within Clause 36 which would have been amended stated:
- A trade union required to maintain a register of the names and addresses of its members by section 24 must send to the Certification Officer a membership audit certificate in relation to each reporting period.
