§ 89. Sir W. Smithers
asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer if he has considered details which have been sent to him of the difficulties experienced by the shipping industry; and, in view of the fact that this industry plays a vital part in our national recovery, if he will go into the matter and do all in his power to meet their difficulties in the next Budget.
§ Mr. R. A. Butler
I have considered the details sent to me, but my hon. Friend will not expect me to anticipate the Budget statement.
