§ Mr. Bence
Is my hon. Friend aware that one respect in which the modernisation of British industry can take place and where great economies can be made is in the trans-shipment of goods from one form of transport to the other? Will he undertake an extensive survey of the shortcomings in our country in the transshipment of goods?
Mr. Gresham Cooke
Would the hon. Gentleman say what consideration he has given to the development of fork-lift trucks and other mechanical handling devices in connection with transport in the docks, and what is being done to modernise the system and to bring our docks up to date with European docks?
§ Mr. Charles Morrison
What consideration has the hon. Gentleman given to the mechanical handling of baggage, particularly at London Airport when members of the Transport and General Workers Union are on strike?
