HC Deb 25 May 1937 vol 324 c98
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).
