HC Deb 17 June 1913 vol 54 c204
53. Mr. WING

asked the President of the Board of Trade if he will take steps to initiate conferences between shipowners and labourers' unions the seaports, with the object of decasualising labour by the creation of clearing houses similar to what is in successful operation in the Port of Liverpool?


This matter presents many difficulties, but my right hon. Friend is aware of its importance, and it is receiving earnest attention.
