HC Deb 21 November 1946 vol 430 cc999-1000
9. Mr. McAdam

asked the Minister of Fuel and Power if he will have an examination made at the coal exporting and bunkering harbours of Irvine, Troon, Ayr and Ardrossan, with a view to discover- ing what coal can be salvaged from the beds of those harbours, and take steps to recover it.

Mr. Shinwell

I am making inquiries into this matter, and will communicate with my hon. Friend as soon as possible.

Sir T. Moore

Is the right hon. Gentleman aware that none of my constituents in these burghs have so far approached me in the matter, and that I have grave doubt whether there is any accuracy in this report?

Mr. Shinwell

On the other hand, it may mean a lack of confidence in the hon. and gallant Member.
