Supplementary note by the Ports' Safety
Organisation (P 07A)
MEETING OF THE TRANSPORT SUB-COMMITTEE HELD
ON 21 MARCH 2001
With reference to the letter of 22 March and
our subsequent telephone conversation, I confirm that PSO will
send the Sub-Committee a note on the survey on the Non-Permanent
Employee (NPE) Code of Practice. However, as explained at the
hearing the Code was brought into effect on 1 October last year
and the survey is due to be carried out six months after that.
Accordingly, we will be issuing a survey response form in our
next mailing to members on 30 March and we will have to allow
at least one month for completed forms to be returned. We will
then need some time to analyse the results before drawing conclusions.
In the circumstances, I do not think I can realistically undertake
to send the note to the Sub-Committee until the end of May. I
do, however, undertake to ensure that it does not go beyond that
I hope that this is satisfactory.
