§ 16. Mr. WEST RUSSELL
asked the President of the Board of Trade whether he has come to any decision with regard to the closing of the Mercantile Marine offices at North Shields?
§ Sir P. CUNLIFFE-LISTER
No decision has yet been arrived at with regard to the Mercantile Marine offices at North 193 and South Shields, as the inquiries are not quite complete. I will inform my hon. Friend as soon as a decision is reached.
