LONDON (Reuters) - British Business Secretary Greg Clark was surprised by the scale of a 4 billion pound ($5.6 billion) equal pay claim that is being brought against supermarket chain Tesco (TSCO.L), he told Sky News on Wednesday.
“I was surprised to see the scale of this,” Clark said in an interview. “This is a proposed action in the courts, so it hasn’t been determined yet... so I shouldn’t prejudge this.”
