National security:  powers of employment tribunals

260.Section 36 replaces subsection (6) of section 10 of the Employment Tribunals Act 1996 (c.17) (procedure regulations in relation to cases involving issues of national security) to clarify that the power conferred by that subsection applies to any proceedings where a national security issue is at stake and not just Crown employment proceedings. This power provides for tribunals to invoke special hearing arrangements where national security issues arise, whether or not an application is made to them to do so.
