"When it comes to workers' rights, this parliament has set world-leading standards and will continue to do so in the future, taking its own decisions, working closely with trade unions and businesses".
Trades Union Congress general secretary Frances O'Grady said the announcement was "blatant window dressing" that left protections under threat.
Scottish National Party lawmaker Stewart McDonald accused May of 'planning to break all spending norms, while Liberal Democrat Brexit spokesman Tom Brake tweeted that 'anyone who votes for the PM's deal on the back of this Tory promise is a gullible fool.
