I move that leave be granted to introduce a Bill entitled an Act to provide minimum terms for the payment of severance pay and compensation for employees (employed under a contract of service or employment) and who are dismissed because of redundancy or other causes beyond their control.
Redundant Workers (Severance Pay and Compensation) Bill, 1965: First Stage.
The First Stage is opposed.
Why is it opposed?
There will be no debate on this Stage.
I hope there will be a Government Bill on this matter.
Therefore, what would be the harm in allowing the First Stage now? We might want the House to divide on it.
You cannot have a division on this Stage, which will come up again the first day of Private Members' Time.
It is very complicated.
