HC Deb 12 February 1941 vol 368 cc1343-4
19. Mr. Logan

asked the Minister of Transport whether, under the new dock labourers pooling scheme, Liverpool, he is taking steps to facilitate special transport services to and from the outer areas of the city for those labourers registered?

Lieut.-Colonel Moore-Brabazon

Yes, Sir. The provision of transport facilities for the dockers is under consideration as part of the general scheme.

Mr. Logan

Is the Minister aware that dockers will willingly work all night if asked to do so, and that the difficulty of food supplies applies to the inadequacy of canteens?

Lieut.-Colonel Moore-Brabazon

What I have in mind is that these labour forces must be extremely mobile at any time.
