§ Mr. Gammans
asked the Minister of Transport if he is aware that owing to the shortage of buses in Southampton it has been impossible for the operatives in the shipyards to revert to the Saturday-working agreement agreed with the trade unions; that in consequence the winter output in the yards is likely to suffer; and what steps he proposes to take to deal with the situation.
§ Mr. Callaghan
So far it has not been possible for the operators concerned to provide the services required without interfering with the transport of other workers. I have asked the Regional Transport Commissioner to see what other steps can be taken as a matter of urgency.
