HC Deb 18 January 1940 vol 356 c272W
Mr. David Adams

asked the Minister of Shipping what orders have been placed for the replacement of lost collier tonnage; and what deliveries are anticipated?

Sir A. Salter

The hon. Member may be assured that full account is being taken of the need for replacing various types of lost vessels, but I hope that he will not press me for details of the building programme.
