HC Deb 05 December 1939 vol 355 cc482-3W
Mr. Benjamin Smith

asked the Minister of Shipping what arrangements are being made for dealing with shipping questions through the Anglo-French Coordinating Committee?

Sir J. Gilmour

As has already been announced, a Permanent Shipping Executive Committee, consisting of an equal number of French and United Kingdom members, has been set up to deal with shipping. The work of this committee and of the other Permanent Executive Committees will be co-ordinated by close contact between them and by reference to the Anglo-French Co-ordinating Committee.
