Mr Peter Morris asked the Minister for Workplace Relations and Small Business, upon notice, on 2 April 1998:

Is he able to say what are the (a) ship loading and (b) ship unloading charge rates for (i) 20 foot and (ii) 40 foot containers by type at the port of Felixstowe.

Mr Reith (Workplace Relations and Small Business) —The answer to the honourable member's question is as follows:

Recent advice provided to my Department by the Port of Felixstowe Limited states that stevedoring charge rates at the port are commercially negotiated with individual shipping companies. In most cases, there is one stevedoring rate for loading or unloading a container, regardless of container size. Most stevedoring rates at the Port of Felixstowe are within the range of A$179—A$205.
