Agency Workers' Bill

Tomorrow sees the second reading of a Private Members Bill put forward by Labour's Andrew Miller. The Bill aims to end exploitation of agency and temporary workers and is strongly backed by the unions and by a substantial number of backbench Labour MPs.

As Martin Bright pointed out in last week's New Statesman tomorrow could be a defining moment for the Brown government - 'one when backbenchers feel they can finally take a stand over the very group most Labour MPs came into parliament to represent: working-class people.'
