HC Deb 27 May 1976 vol 912 c351W
Mr. Stott

asked the Secretary of State for Trade whether those most directly concerned in marine pilotage, the pilots and the shipowners who use their services, accept in general the recommendation in the Report of the Steering Committee on Pilotage; and if he will introduce early legislation to implement the recommendations.

Mr. Clinton Davis

Yes. At meetings with representatives of pilots and shipowners this week they fully endorsed their general acceptance of the recommendations. I hope that legislative time can soon be found to implement the recommendations.
