HC Deb 20 November 1947 vol 444 c220W
120. Lieut.-Colonel Clifton-Brown

asked the Minister of Transport what action is being taken to prevent the abnormal number of thefts of food parcels at Southampton Docks, belonging to passengers returning to this country from South Africa and other parts of the world.

Mr. Callaghan

I am told by the Southern Railway Company, who own and manage the docks, that comparatively few such thefts have been reported to them or to the shipping companies concerned.
