16. Mr. ALLEN
asked the President of the Board of Trade whether he is aware of the effect on trade and employment in Belfast of the cost of freights between Belfast and Liverpool and other United Kingdom ports; and whether he will consider setting up a Committee to investigate the matter?
§ Mr. W. GRAHAM
I am not aware that any complaints have been made regarding freight rates between Belfast and Liverpool and other United Kingdom ports, but if the hon. Member has knowledge of such complaints and will supply me with details, I will consider the matter.
§ Mr. MacLAREN
Will the right hon. Gentleman consider asking the Belfast Government to allocate some of the £8,000,000 they are getting from this House for the purpose?
