HC Deb 17 February 1937 vol 320 c1178
49. Lieut.-Colonel Moore

asked the Minister for the Co-ordination of Defence whether, with a view to reducing the dangerous concentration of shipping at the larger ports of the country, he has given consideration to plans for the improvement and increased use of the lesser ports on the coasts of Great Britain?

Sir T. Inskip

Yes, Sir.

Lieut.-Colonel Moore

Will my right hon. Friend bear in mind that there are numerous small ports in Ayrshire?
