§ Sir S. Hoare
No, Sir. I am informed that it is the large ships that matter. The hon. Member will remember that there is a general prohibition against discharging oil from any ships within, I think, 50 miles of the coast. That remains. It is a general prohibition, and, as far as the large ships are concerned, we think that it is a sufficient provision.
§ Mr. George Griffiths
Will the Admiralty consider the desirability of using coal instead of oil, and then these birds will not be affected?
