HC Deb 08 May 1940 vol 360 cc1211-2
29. Mr. R. Gibson

asked the Minister of Transport what statement he has to make regarding sailings in the Firth of Clyde during the summer months; and, in particular, what arrangements will be made for sailings between Greenock and Campbeltown?

Captain Wallace

As most of the railway-owned passenger steamers on the Clyde have been taken over for war purposes, the companies' summer services have had to be curtailed, and they will be unable to run a service to Campbeltown. Owing to the small amount of traffic, the Clyde and Campbeltown Shipping Company have discontinued their service except for two small cargo steamers. Passengers to Campbeltown can, however, utilise the daily service by MacBrayne's steamer to Tarbert and proceed thence by omnibus to Campbeltown.
