Priti Patel questions use of taxpayers money to subsidise administration of trade unions

Priti Patel (Witham) (Con): Does my right hon. Friend think that it is fair on hard-working British taxpayers that their money is used to subsidise the administration of trade unions, rather than that cash going to front-line services?
 
Mr Maude: My hon. Friend has been a doughty campaigner for the use of facility time to be much better regulated. We inherited from Labour a position in which very large amounts of public money were being spent on subsidising 250 full-time officials in the civil service alone, let alone in the wider public sector. I am happy to tell her that we have got that under control.
