Vince Cable: 'Good balance' to redundancy talks

The 90-day consultation period before large-scale redundancies can take place is to be cut to 45 days, under government plans.

Business Secretary Vince Cable told BBC News that the changes would provide a good balance between the employers and employees.

Labour said the changes would not boost economic growth and the TUC said: "Making it easier to sack people is the last thing we need."
