HC Deb 28 June 1971 vol 820 c53W
Mr. James Hill

asked the Secretary of State for Employment if he will make a statement on the progress of Devlin 2 in relation to Southampton and comparable ports such as Liverpool.

Mr. Bryan

There is no Devlin 2 agreement in Liverpool. I understand that tonnages handled in Southampton have increased. Other comparable ports are Bristol, Glasgow and Hull.

My information from employers suggests that in the first two productivity has been maintained but in Hull throughput has been affected by strikes.
