§ 7. Mr. Shinwell
asked the President of the Board of Trade whether any part of the £2,000,000 set aside for assistance to tramp shipping in the current year has been expended?
§ Mr. Runciman
No payments of subsidy for voyages or parts of voyages carried out in 1937 have been made. In this connection I would refer the hon. Member to paragraph 4 of the Memorandum on the Financial Resolution providing for the Continuance of the Tramp Shipping Subsidy (Cmd. 5357).
