Asked whether the Prime Minister had made up his mind on possible new rules for the right to strike, the Prime Minister’s Spokesman (PMS) told the assembled press that the position remained the same; we didn’t currently have any proposals to amend the strike laws but the Prime Minister had said in the past that he was happy to look at the argument.

The PMS added that as the Business Secretary had been saying this morning, despite occasional blips, strike levels in this country remained historically low, so at the moment the case for changing the strike laws was not a compelling one. However, this was something we kept under review.
