Taxpayer funding of trade unions debated in Parliament
Last night saw Aidan Burley, MP for Cannock Chase, call for an end to the taxpayer funding of trade unions. In a heated debate that attracted the attendance of Secretary of State Eric Pickles, Burley put forward a comprehensive case for the ending of what he called the “Spanish practice” of union activists who are paid for by the taxpayer but work exclusively on union duties.
During the debate the TaxPayers' Alliance was praised and both our reports on the taxpayer funding of trade unions and the Trade Union Rich List were quoted extensively.
