HC Deb 22 June 1937 vol 325 cc990-1
3. Mr. Kelly

asked the President of the Board of Trade the names of British firms who, in the last two years, ordered ships to be constructed in Germany?

Mr. Stanley

There are no official statistics of orders placed by British firms for the construction of ships in Germany, but I will, with the hon. Member's permission, circulate a table in the OFFICIAL REPORT showing the registered owners of the steam and motor ships of 100 tons gross and over recently built in Germany which are shown in the returns of the Registrar-General of Shipping and Seamen as having been registered in the United Kingdom since March, 1935.

Mr. Kelly

May I ask to what date the figures go? Do they include the construction for the last two years?

Mr. Stanley

We have no figures of construction. All we can give are those of vessels which have been registered.
