asked the Minister of Labour whether financial charge will be incurred by her Department in respect of the inquiry into casual labour at the Merseyside docks; and whether any report or reports of the results of such inquiry will be Government publications and supplied to Members of the House?
No extra financial expenditure will fall upon my Department in connection with this inquiry which has been conducted by the Lord Mayor of Liverpool. My Department lent its services for the collection of information. The report of the inquiry has already been published under the authority of the Lord Mayor. It is not proposed to make it a Government publication.
