Answer for Blacklisting

Answered By: 
The Mayor

Officers are drafting a response which will be sent shortly.

Written response from the Mayor received 26 July 2013.

Blacklisting is an unacceptable and illegal practice. Crossrail Limited has asked for and received assurances from all its principal contractors providing confirmation that none have engaged in any blacklisting activity on the Crossrail project. The case of Mr Morris is currently subject to an Employment Tribunal.
