HC Deb 01 February 1934 vol 285 c566W

asked the Minister of Labour what action, if any, has been taken, or is contemplated, on the recommendation of the Royal Commission that in respect of the control of methods of engaging labour the dock industry should be the first to receive his attention?


My right hon. Friend has been in consultation with the Standing Advisory Committee of the port labour industry to which the Royal Commission refer in paragraph 602 of their report. As a result of such consultation, Clause 27 has been included in the Unemployment Bill.
