David Davis attacks ‘Franco-style’ sections of Tories’ trade union bill

Conservative MP says parts of legislation are sensible but evoked fascist Spanish dictatorship to describe other measures

The Conservative MP David Davis has attacked parts of the government’s trade union bill, suggesting proposed restrictions on pickets were like something out of Franco’s dictatorship in Spain.

The MP, who ran against David Cameron for the Tory leadership in 2005, said he agreed with most of the bill.
