To ask His Majesty's Government what assessment they have made of the effects of the UK's departure from the EU on the participation of UK workers in European Works Councils.

At the end of the EU exit implementation period, the Government amended the Transnational Information and Consultation of Employees Regulations 1999, so that no new requests to set up a European Works Council (EWC) can be made but retained the regulatory framework for existing EWCs in the UK to continue to operate. No formal assessment of the impacts of EU exit on participation in EWCs has been made.

19th Dec 2022
To ask His Majesty's Government what assessment they have made of the impact of the furlough scheme on (1) relationships between employers and employees, and (2) the number of older people leaving the workforce; and in any such assessment, what links they have found between these factors.

The Coronavirus Job Retention Scheme protected millions of UK jobs at a time of unprecedented economic uncertainty.

His Majesty’s Treasury (HMT) and His Majesty’s Revenue and Customs (HMRC) jointly published an interim evaluation in September 2022, looking at the scheme between March and October 2020. A final evaluation, covering the full duration of the scheme and a Value for Money assessment, will be published in 2023.
