§ 51. Mr. W. BENNETT
asked the Financial Secretary of the Treasury, if he will give a list of shipping and mail subsidies paid by the Government during the last financial year?
A sum of £10,000 was provided on the Scottish Office Vote as a subsidy towards the Hebridean steamer services. This was the only payment that can properly be described as a shipping or mail subsidy.
§ Mr. SHINWELL
Is there not a subsidy provided for the Cunard and White Star Lines for the carrying of mails?
