25. Mr. Edward M. Taylor
asked the President of the Board of Trade what representations he has received for the nationalisation of the shipping industry and whether he will make a statement.
If the hon. Gentleman has received no representations as such, would he agree that it is not for the want of proposals along these lines by the more outrageous Left-wing organisations? Will he give a firm assurance that he will not seek to solve the problems of this industry by the sterile formula of nationalisation?
§ Mr. Emrys Hughes
Has my hon. Friend received any representations from Right-wing elements calling for the denationalisation of our oldest nationalised industry—the British Navy?
