HC Deb 27 March 1911 vol 23 c904

asked whether the Port Authority, in accordance with Clause 28, Section (1), of the Port of London Act, 1908, and in consideration of the existing methods and conditions of engagement of workmen employed in connection with the Port of London, had yet taken any steps to diminish the evils of casual employment and to promote the more convenient and regular engagement of such workmen, in the manner laid down in the Clause and Section referred to; and whether he could state the results achieved?


I understand that this matter has been engaging the careful attention of the Port of London Authority, and they are now in communication with the Board of Trade on the subject.
