HC Deb 18 April 1946 vol 421 c490W
Mr. Henderson Stewart

asked the Minister of Supply what are the terms of the instructions given to the makers of boat engines with the object of ensuring a priority to the fishing industry in the manufacture and sale of such engines.

Mr. Wilmot:

The information necessary to enable me to give guidance to manufacturers about the allocation of output between home and export is still being collected. Meanwhile, the principal manufacturers have undertaken to give priority to engines for the fishing fleet over engines for pleasure craft and to give special consideration to cases of hardship.
