HC Deb 13 November 1979 vol 973 cc521-2W
Mr. Brotherton

asked the Secretary of State for Employment how many categories of officials from the National Dock Labour Board have a statutory right to enter land to promote the welfare amenities available for dockers; what are the current numbers in each category; and whether he has any plans to review this entry right.

Mr. Mayhew

Officials of the National Dock Labour Board may be authorised to enter land for this purpose only if the Secretary of State has made art order under section 29(1) of the Docks and Harbours Act 1966 declaring that a person has failed to comply with a requirement imposed on and notified to him under section 25 of that Act. No such order has been made and therefore no officials of the Board are so authorised.

I have no plans to review this provision.
