§ 152. Mr. Donner
asked the Minister of Transport the size and number of tankers laid up or tied up at Falmouth.
§ Mr. Barnes
Two, apart from ten tankers undergoing mainly short term repairs: the "Desmoulea," of 8,146 gross tons, which is heavily damaged and is being prepared for dry-dock, and the "Empire Control," of 5,612 gross tons, built in 1913. Until recently she was reserved for conversion into a herring factory, but it has now been decided not to proceed with this and she is being offered for sale.
