Commenting on the Carr Review announced by the government today (Saturday), TUC General Secretary Frances O’Grady said:

“This Review may have been announced with great fanfare by the Prime Minister, but the delay in setting it up, the limited terms of reference and the exclusion of the promised consideration of employer behaviour, such as blacklisting, confirms that it was never anything more than a headline grabbing party-political stunt.”
