Motion text

This House expresses deep concern over the Government’s decision to review the “working time directive” implemented by the Working Time Regulations 1998; notes that amongst other achievements the Directive gave UK workers a statutory right to paid annual leave for the first time; further notes that the Government is yet to present its promised Employment Bill to enshrine EU employment law in the UK post-transition; and calls on the Government to present its new Employment Bill to honour its pledge made in the Queen’s speech that workers’ rights would be “protected and enhanced”.
