§ Mr. David Atkinson
asked the Secretary of State for Employment if he is satisfied with the workings of the Dock Work Regulation Act 1976.
§ Mr. Waddington
The only substantive sections of the 1976 Act which are effectively operational are those reconstituting the National Dock Labour Board and dealing with the board's finances—sections 1, 3 and 13. I am satisfied with the working of these sections.
