HC Deb 13 July 1977 vol 935 c171W
Mr. Sims

asked the Secretary of State for Employment whether it is his intention to appoint to the reconstituted National Dock Labour Board representatives of importers and exporters.

Mr. Harold Walker

The members of the reconstituted Board have been appointed with effect from 1st August 1977. None has been appointed solely to represent importers and exporters. The appointments of the four members of the Board, other than those nominated by the National Joint Council for the Port Transport Industry to represent dock employers and dock workers, have been made after consultation with the Trades Union Congress, the Confederation of British Industry and the National Joint Council as required by Section 1(4) of the Act.
