62. Mr. Blenkinsop

asked the President of the Board of Trade what repre- sentations he has received from the National Union of Seamen regarding the present trend of British shipping companies to combine with firms overseas for the development of container fleets; and what reply he has sent.

Mr. William Rodgers

None. But we have received an interesting report of containerisation from the union which is being considered by an interdepartmental group of officials.
