§ Mr. Clinton Davis
Representations have been received from all the main interested parties, nearly all strongly supporting the establishment of a Central Pilotage Board.
§ Mr. Davis
That is the view of a very small minority. In fact, the views which stemmed from the committee which investigated pilotage are supported by the United Kingdom Pilots' Association, the Transport and General Workers' Union, the General Council of British Shipping and the British Ports Association, all of which dissent wholly from the views expressed on this matter by Trinity House. We expect improved efficiency and cost effectiveness as a result of the measures which we should like to see on the statute book as soon as possible.
§ Mr. Costain
Will the Minister come down to Folkestone and hear the views of the pilot station there, which thoroughly disagree with what he has just said?
