The Transport and General Workers' Union and the other unions represented on the Workpeople's Side of the National Joint Council have agreed with the Employers' Side in offering the National Amalgamated Stevedores and Dockers a seat on the National Modernisation Committee which the Council has set up to work out a new plan for modernising the industrial relations in the industry. The National Amalgamated Stevedores and Dockers have accepted the seat on the terms on which it was offered.

My right hon. Friend hopes shortly to make a general statement on the progress being made in implementing the recommendations of the Devlin Report.
