Many big companies that promised money and should have paid money haven't done so. The first thing in the resolution is to say: Let's get on with paying compensations and if companies don't, we should name and shame them.” 22. CUTAWAY: DAVID MARTIN TALKING TO HER ASSISTANT 23. DAVID MARTIN (S&D MEP, GB) SAYING (ENGLISH SPEECH): “The trade unions should be better recognized in Bangladesh because they historically and traditionally support health and safety and look after workers' rights on the ground.

DAVID MARTIN (S&D MEP, GB) SAYING (ENGLISH SPEECH): “The culture of cheap labour for cheap clothes has to change.
