Sprint Business Practices

EDM number 2077 in 1992-93, proposed by Joe Benton on 25/05/1993.

That this House calls on the Government to block the bid t operate the Government Telecommunications Network by the American company Sprint at least until such time as Sprint has demonstrated that it has satisfactorily resolved charges raised in lawsuits that it violated US securities laws, committed fraud and violated pyramid sales laws, that the special committee of outside directors established in 1991 has reported on its review of the company's ethical policies and guideline, and that it has adopted policies which allow their employees to freely choose union representation without fear or intimidation in the workplace.

This motion has been signed by a total of 52 MPs.
