asked the Minister of Labour what was the percentage of unemployment among tally clerks in the Port of London during the months of February, March and April, 1961; and what was their average weekly earnings.

The National Dock Labour Board informs me that the average percentage of tally clerks in the Port of London for whom no work was available was 6·4 during February, 9·1 during March, and 10·9 during April. The average earnings of daily workers were £18 15s. 11d. a week during February and £18 5s. 5d. during March, but the figures for April are not yet available.
