HC Deb 02 May 1972 vol 836 c191
Q1. Mr. Leslie Huckfield

asked the Prime Minister what transport arrangements are available to him for making official visits.

The Prime Minister (Mr. Edward Heath)

Those necessary for the performance of my official duties.

Mr. Huckfield

I still do not quite understand the answer which the Prime Minister has just given. Can he not understand that the total transport situation in this country is rapidly deteriorating because of the deliberately political use of the National Industrial Relations Court? Will he accept that resort to a court of law is not necessarily the best possible way of solving complicated social problems, such as containerisation in the docks?

The Prime Minister

Whilst congratulating the hon. Gentleman on being able to talk on any point at any distance from that point, may I tell him that this has no relevance to the official transport for my official duties.
