HC Deb 04 March 1947 vol 434 c30W
30. Mr. Henderson Stewart

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland what action he has taken on the letter from the Fishing Boat Builders' Association, drawing attention to the shortage of timber, with the result of stoppage of boat-building in some yards and threatened early stoppage in others.

Mr. Westwood

This matter has been taken up with the Admiralty, as the Department responsible for issuing licences for timber to the builders of fishing boats.
