Motion text

That this House regrets the recent dismissal of Joel Hamilton from his job as a civil servant working for HMRC at Benton Park View in the wake of lawful industrial action taken with his union, PCS; notes that, since then, two more PCS union reps have been dismissed, and a further two are now subject to investigation; further notes the strength of feeling amongst the workers relating to these cases; and therefore calls on Government to commission an investigation into the use of disciplinary processes within HMRC, to reinstate all members of staff who are found to have been wrongfully dismissed, and to defend the democratic right to trade union representation within the civil service and beyond.
