REC response to Regulation 7 judgement

Responding to today’s judgement on the unions’ judicial review cases on regulation 7 revocation, REC Chief Executive Neil Carberry said:

“This decision comes as no surprise. The law required a level of consideration and consultation that the rushed, politically-driven process of last year simply did not allow for. Government must now act swiftly – while the process has been ruled unlawful the regulations remain on the statute book, putting agency workers, agencies and client businesses into a world of uncertainty about what the law now is. We encourage the Secretary of State to act swiftly to restore the situation that was in place before this ill-judged change was made.”
