HC Deb 20 June 1939 vol 348 c1991
14. Mr. Storey

asked the President of the Board of Trade whether he is aware that the proportion of British ships chartered from the Argentine has continued to decline; and what action the Government propose to take to deal with this loss of trade?

Mr. Stanley

I hope that the Government's proposals for the assistance of the British shipping industry, including the tramp shipping subsidy, will enable British ships to maintain and extend their share of world trade.
