§ 15. Mr. HORE-BELISHA
asked the President of the Board of Trade whether, 252 in view of the fact that £1,000,000 is offered by private sources for the development of a new industry, in connection with tin alluvials, on the Tamar and that the establishment of this industry would mean the absorption of many unemployed, he will take steps to facilitate the establishment of this industry, which is being held up by the fishing rights of individuals, seeing that no risk to the State is involved?
§ Mr. W. GRAHAM
I regret that I can add nothing to the replies which I gave to the hon. Member on this subject on 24th June.
§ Mr. GRAHAM
The difficulty is that the firm in question, according to my information, have either abandoned the project, or at all events are not pressing it. If they would communicate with me, I would make further inquiries.
