§ 35. Mr. P. Thorneycroft
asked the President of the Board of Trade what steps are being taken to ensure that no cargoes essential to British industry and the re-armament drive are being held up as a result of the Manchester dock strike.
§ Sir H. Shawcross
The position is being closely watched. Although some important cargoes are being delayed, my right hon. Friend the Minister of Supply and I are satisfied that so far essential production has not been held up.
