Have your say

It is tiresome to keep hearing ministers and the media saying that the government may impose a contract on junior doctors/employees.

A contract is a (usually) signed agreement between two people or participants. Conditions of work, wages and duties can be imposed in a “take it or leave it” situation. There can be no contract (by definition) if the parties do not agree it. The government will be merely forcing an imposition. What next – slavery?
