Changes to collective redundancy rules

Dear Department for Business, Innovation and Skills,

In a press release issued on 18 December 2012 (http://rnn.cabinetoffice.gov.uk/Press-Re...), the government announced that it plans to reduce the minimum 90 day period of large-scale redundancies.

Employment Relations Minister, Jo Swinson said, "We have listened to stakeholders and there is a strong argument for shortening the minimum period which is backed up by hard evidence."

Please provide:
1. A list of the stakeholders.
2. Copies of the hard evidence that supports the argument for shortening the minimum consultation period.

Thank you.

Yours faithfully,
A Smithson
