HC Deb 28 June 1982 vol 26 c216W
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.
