Supplementary notes

* Question posed by the source: "It has been suggested that the law should be changed to introduce a minimum turnout on union strike ballots, so a trade union can only go on strike if more than 50% of all employees (rather than all those voting) cast a vote, either for or against, for a strike to go ahead. This would make it more difficult for a Trade Union to go on strike. Would you support or oppose this change? "
