asked the Secretary to the Board of Trade, If he is in a position to state in what form additional facilities are to be offered for the increase or improvement of harbour accommodation by localities willing and able to give the requisite security for interest and repayment of loans of public money?
§ THE SECRETARY TO THE BOARD (Baron HENRY DE WORMS) (Liverpool, East Toxteth)
, in reply, said, he was not yet in a position to state what additional facilities could be offered; but if the hon. Gentleman would communicate with him privately he would be happy to see what could be done.
§ MR. MARJORIBANKS (Berwick)
gave Notice that he would next Session draw attention to the want of deep-water harbours on the coasts of England and Scotland, and move that a sum not less than that spent on harbours in Ireland should be expended in providing additional harbour accommodation for those countries.
