12. Mr. Garro Jones

asked the Minister of Shipping what steps he proposes to take to maintain the hours of work in open-air shipyards during black-out hours?

The Minister of Shipping (Sir John Gilmour)

This question is under urgent examination with particular reference to local conditions in each case.

Mr. Ede

May we take it that active steps are being taken by the Minister to prevent production falling under the difficulties of the black-out?

Yes, Sir. We realise the urgency of this matter.
