HC Deb 29 March 1976 vol 908 c365W
Mr. Sims

asked the Secretary of State for Trade what discussions his Department has had, or plans to have, with the Thames Dock Pilots and Boatmen's Association concerning his intention to translate the recommendations of the Steering Committee on Pilotage into legislative form.

Mr. Clinton Davis

Although no discussions with my Department have been requested by the Thames Dock Pilots and Boatmen's Association, its comments on the SCOP report have been carefully considered. I should be glad to consider any request from the Association for a discussion with my officials.
