HC Deb 05 July 1988 vol 136 c556W
57. Mr. Madel

To ask the Secretary of State for Employment whether he expects to announce changes in the dock labour scheme before 1 September 1989; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. Nicholls

As I said in reply to a question from my hon. Friend the Member for Warrington, South (Mr. Butler), on 29 April, at column 298, and on other occasions in the House, the Government have no present plans to change the scheme. I cannot speculate about what view might be taken in future.
