§ 9. Mr. THURTLE
asked the Minister of Labour whether he is aware that casual labourers at the London docks who are unemployed have to get their insurance cards stamped twice a day at the riverside huts; whether he is aware that, in making this double journey, some men have to walk seven or eight miles daily; and whether he will consider an alteration of the regulations at present in force?
§ Mr. E. BROWN
This question is at present being examined by the National Joint Council for Dock Labour, and I must await its conclusions.
§ Mr. BUCHANAN
Can the right hon. Gentleman say how long this council is likely to be considering this matter?
