Talks have resumed between leaders of the Unite union and officials from distribution firms in an effort to try and resolve a dispute over health and safety.

The issue had been present for more than a year, though its impact heightened last month when Unite confirmed that staff at five firms had voted to strike, causing long queues at the pumps in Bath, reports This Is Bath.

Acas chief conciliator Peter Harwood said yesterday: "Talks have adjourned for today and will continue tomorrow at 9am. This is a complex process and all parties remain committed to seeking a positive way forward."

Last month, professor Ragnar Lofstedt, director of the King's Centre for Risk Management at King's College has announced a new cross-party parliamentary committee.

It will aim to promote evidence-based health and safety policy making in the EU and will be launched at the European Parliament this June.

Professor Lofstedt noted that European Parliament is not always "evidence-based" in its policy making.ADNFCR-2754-ID-801338013-ADNFCR
