§ 41. Mr. HERBERT SAMUEL
asked the First Lord of the Admiralty what was the gross tonnage of merchant vessels completed in the United Kingdom in April; how this compares with the corresponding figure for March; and what was the total output of the first four months of this year and of the last four months of last year?
§ Mr. PRETYMAN
As my right hon. Friend will have seen, the information for which he asks is contained in the Return published in the Press this morning. The gross tonnage of merchant vessels completed in the United Kingdom will be published in the Press on the first Thursday in each month; if this should fall on or before the 3rd of the month, publication will be made on the second Thursday of that month.
