HC Deb 07 June 1888 vol 326 c1410
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.
