HC Deb 04 March 1920 vol 126 c673W
Viscount WOLMER

asked the Minister of Transport what steps are being taken to relieve the congestion at the Port of London and to facilitate the discharge of cargoes?


The various causes of the congestion at the ports, and the steps which are being taken to meet them are too complex to be satisfactorily dealt with in the scope of an answer. As my Noble Friend is aware, many causes apart from transport contribute to the congestion, and I hope the House may have an opportunity of discussing them on the Motion standing in the name of the hon. Member for Chippenham—

To call attention to the congestion in the Ports of London and Liverpool, and to move a Resolution.—[Mr. G. Terrell.]
