§ Sir R. THOMAS
asked the President of the Board of Trade whether, in view of the fact that derelicts continue to be a menace to shipping, and having regard to the fact that their destruction by fire has been found to be unsatisfactory, he will consider the issue of explosive charges to cargo ships for this purpose?
§ Sir P. CUNLIFFE-LISTER
So far as my information goes, the danger from derelicts is decreasing. In any case, I am afraid I cannot regard the hon. Baronet's suggestion as a practicable one.
