After a break of almost a month, Monday will see both Houses back in action. The Lords may have been on an extended break (lucky them), but they'll hit the ground running with one of the most controversial laws of this session: the Trade Union Bill.
It's a busy week for both Houses, though, with armed forces, housing, mayors, benefits and riot compensation all on the agenda, too.
Trade Union Bill
A London tube strike costs the economy from £50 -£600 million.
This law make strikes harder by making more people have to vote for them. It also puts in a delay to strike, changes rules about picketing & political funding.
Critics say it takes power away from workers; threatens democracy; & striking is a human right.
