Rigid Labour Markets And Unemployment

EDM number 119 in 1996-97, proposed by David Atkinson on 31/10/1996.

That this House is alarmed to learn that the European Commission has suppressed evidence showing a clear link between rigid labour markets and unemployment; questions as to what extent suppression of the truth occurs in the EC; notes that the success of the United Kingdom economy with flexible labour markets and low unemployment provides the clearest evidence yet; and calls upon the Commission to make public the report for the benefit of the millions of jobless in the European Union.

This motion has been signed by a total of 39 MPs.
