HC Deb 09 January 1913 vol 46 cc1369-70

asked if the President of the Board of Trade has received any further correspondence from the Port of London Authority with regard to their proposed scheme for dealing with casual labour which was forwarded to the Board of Trade in April, 1911; and whether there is any probability of a decision being arrived at in the matter?


There has been no recent formal correspondence between the Board of Trade and the Authority on this subject, but the importance of the matter is not being overlooked. The special difficulties of the Port of London are very great, but the matter is receiving my close attention.
