Do I take it that the hon. Gentleman is prepared to put into operation such a system as is referred to in the question? Is he not aware that Liverpool dockers' wives will not be able to get food supplies at all if such an arrangement is not put into operation?
I think the hon. Member can take it that the Minister will be quite prepared to accept the arrangement provided that agreement is reached between the parties concerned. May I further say that this question is under—I think the official term is—very active consideration?
