HC Deb 15 July 1929 vol 230 c14
65. Lieut.-Commander KENWORTHY

asked the Minister of Agriculture whether he has been able to take any steps to facilitate the improvement of the harbour at Staithes in the interests of the fishing community?


A scheme for the improvement of the Harbour of Staithes has been approved and arrangements have been made for Grants-in-aid through the Development Commission subject to a contribution from local sources. Tenders have been invited by the Harbour Commissioners, and it is hoped that the work will be commenced before the end of the summer.

Lieut.-Commander KENWORTHY

May I thank my right hon. Friend for his efficient action.
