(1)Within the period of six months beginning with the appointed day the Board shall report to the Secretary of State, separately in respect of each of the ports where the 1967 Scheme is in force, how at that port the Scheme is currently applied as respects the descriptions of work which are for its purposes dock work or are so treated by custom and practice.
(2)The Board's report in each case shall specify—
(a)every category of such work done in the port, in the period of twelve months ending with the appointed day, in whose case there were employed to do it either—
(i)registered dock workers, or
(ii)with permission of the local dock labour board under clause 10 of the 1967 Scheme, persons other than registered dock workers; and
(b)in respect of each category of work, the premises at which it is or was done.
(3)Copies of the Board's report shall be given—
(a)to all those who are, or have been at any time in the period of twelve months ending with the appointed day, employers of workers on work of any such category as is specified in subsection (2) above;
(b)to any trade union which is, or at any time in that period was, recognised by an employer in respect of any such workers ; and
(c)to any other person appearing to the Board to be concerned with the subject matter of the report.
(4)A report by the Board under this section may be referred back to them by the Secretary of State, with his observations, if he thinks it possible that they have misdirected themselves in relation to any aspect of it; and—
(a)the Board shall then within one month of the reference back report further to the Secretary of State, taking his observations into account; and
(b)subsection (3) above also applies to this further report.
(5)As soon as may be after receiving a report (or further report) by the Board under this section relating to any port (but not until all those mentioned in subsection (3) above have had at least a month in which to make representations), the Secretary of State shall prepare, with a view to making and bringing into force, an order or orders—
(a)specifying (in such terms as he thinks appropriate) the descriptions of work referred to in the report, in each case by reference to the premises at which the work is or has been done ; and
(b)classifying any such description of work (so far as done at those premises) as dock work for the purposes of the new Scheme.
(6)In this section " port" means any one of the individual ports listed in Appendix 1 to the 1967 Scheme, together with any area as to which the Board is satisfied that it has for purposes of that Scheme's application been treated as belonging to the port.
