84. Lieut.-Colonel MOORE
asked the President of the Board of Trade why direct sailing between the ports of Campbeltown and Ayr has been discontinued, since the alternative route via Greenock involves increased charges which inflict a hardship on the trading community?
§ Mr. W. R. SMITH
I have made inquiries and understand that since the War the direct service between Campbeltown and Ayr has been discontinued owing to the lack of remunerative quantities of traffic. Direct sailings are, however, arranged when justified by the traffic.
