§ MR. POMFRET (Kent, Ashford)
asked the First Lord of the Treasury, Whether, considering the natural advantages of Dungeness, Her Majesty's Government are now prepared to sanction the formation of a harbour of refuge at Dungeness in lieu of the one that was to have been made at Dover?
§ THE FIRST LORD (Mr. W. H. SMITH) (Strand, Westminster)
Without contesting the statement of the hon. Member as to the natural advantages possessed by Dungeness as a harbour of refuge, I can only say that the Government are not prepared to give any pledge as to the formation of a harbour of refuge there.
