HC Deb 20 June 1939 vol 348 c2048W
Mr. R. Robinson

asked the President of the Board of Trade whether he will consider preventing Shipbuilding Securities, Limited, from closing down any further shipyards in view of the urgent need for keeping open every shipbuilding yard and engineering company in view of the Government's rearmament needs?

Mr. Stanley

I do not think I can usefully add to the reply which I gave to the hon. Member for Jarrow (Miss Wilkinson) on the 2nd May, a copy of which I am sending to my hon. Friend.
