§ Mr. E. Granville
asked the Parliamentary Secretary to the Ministry of War Transport, what steps he is taking to reopen the ferry service at Walberswick, Suffolk.
§ Mr. P. Thorneycroft
My Noble Friend has no jurisdiction in this matter. The ferry at Walberswick is privately owned, but I understand that the Suffolk County Council are negotiating with the owner to acquire the ferry rights. If these negotiations are satisfactorily concluded I assume that the county council will sec that an adequate service is maintained.
