Kwasi Kwarteng – 2022 Comments on Legislation to Allow Temporary Staff During Strikes

The comments made by Kwasi Kwarteng, the Business Secretary, on 23 June 2022.

Once again trade unions are holding the country to ransom by grinding crucial public services and businesses to a halt. The situation we are in is not sustainable.

Repealing these 1970s-era restrictions will give businesses freedom to access fully skilled staff at speed, all while allowing people to get on with their lives uninterrupted to help keep the economy ticking.
