§ 50. Mr. Denville
asked the Minister of Transport whether, with a view to removing congestion in certain of our ports, he will consider the amount of accommodation and labour available in New-castle-on-Tyne?
§ The Parliamentary Secretary to the Ministry of Transport (Mr. Montague)
I 269 am fully alive to the facilities available on the Tyne, but my hon. Friend will realise that there are many considerations involved
Mr. J. J. Davidson
Has the Ministry any specific information where private agreements—for instance, private railway agreements—interfere with the smooth working of these docks, and, if so, are they taking any specific action?
§ Mr. Montague
That is quite another question, and perhaps my hon. Friend will put it upon the Paper.
