EDM number 2838 in 2010-12, proposed by John McDonnell on 07/03/2012.

That this House notes with extreme concern the report in The Observer newspaper of 4 March 2012 concerning the involvement of the police and security services in the compilation of a blacklist of workers by the Consulting Association used to deny those workers access to employment; further notes that the operation of a blacklist in this wayis contrary to law and morally reprehensible; and calls on the Secretary of State for the Home Department to establish an independent public inquiry into the operation of blacklisting in the UK given that over 3,200 workers were found to be on the Consulting Association's blacklist, which was used by over 40 major construction and engineering companies and which had such severe consequences for the blacklisted workers and their families as their livelihoods were undermined.

This motion has been signed by a total of 20 MPs.
