Bruce Beckles made this Freedom of Information request to Department for Business, Innovation and Skills

This request has been closed to new correspondence from the public body. Contact us if you think it ought be re-opened.

Department for Business, Innovation and Skills did not have the information requested.

Dear Department for Business, Innovation and Skills,

I am making this request on the assumption that the Secretary of State for Business, Innovation and Skills is the "Secretary of State" referred to in the the Trade Union and Labour Relations (Consolidation) Act 1992. Please inform me, by e-mail to this address, whether the Department for Business, Innovation and Skills is the department of government which would normally hold notifications to the Secretary of State under Section 193 of the amended Trade Union and Labour Relations (Consolidation) Act 1992. (If this Department is not the department of government which would normally hold these notifications, I would greatly appreciate it if you told me which Department is the correct department for these.)

If this is the correct department of government, please tell me, by reply to this e-mail address, broken down by calendar year, and starting from 1 January 2004, the number of times the University of Cambridge has notified the Secretary of State under section 193 of the amended Trade Union and Labour Relations (Consolidation) Act 1992.

If this is the correct department of government but the statistical information asked for above is unavailable, then please tell me, by reply to this e-mail address, whether the Department holds copies of any notifications from the University of Cambridge under section 193 of the amended Trade Union and Labour Relations (Consolidation) Act 1992, such notifications applying to any time period from 1 January 2004 onward.

Yours faithfully,

Bruce Beckles

It seems that it is indeed the case that notifications under section 193 of the Trade Union and Labour Relations (Consolidation) Act 1992 are held by The Insolvency Service (specifically by their Redundancy Payments Service), but forms are retained only for 12 months. See the response to this Freedom of Information request on WhatDoTheyKnow.com:

http://www.whatdotheyknow.com/request/no...

That response also suggests that the relevant Secretary of State for this Act is indeed the Secretary of State for Business, Innovation and Skills.
