§ Mr. Rose
asked the Secretary of State for Employment whether he will take steps to allow members of community health councils the protection of Section 59 of the Protection of Employment Act 1975.
§ Mr. Harold Walker
I believe we need more experience of its operation in practice before extending the application of Section 59 of the Employment Protection Act 1975 which only came into operation on 6th April 1977. I will, of course, bear in mind my hon. Friend's suggestion.
