That this House welcomes the campaign by the Bakers Food and Allied Workers Union and other trade unions to improve the pay and conditions of workers in McDonald's and other fast food outlets; welcomes McDonald's moves so far towards removing zero hours contracts from its UK business; condemns McDonald's for its refusal to recognise trade unions in its UK operations; calls on the Government to ensure that McDonald's and other global corporations pay their fair share of tax in the UK; welcomes the Labour Party's decision not to permit McDonald's to have a stand at the Labour Party conference; and urges the Labour Party to maintain its decision to refuse to allow McDonald's a stand at its conference until that company chooses to recognise trade unions.
