HC Deb 05 December 1957 vol 579 c67W
36. Mr. J. Harvey

asked the President of the Board of Trade whether his attention has been drawn to the fact that cars, destined for export, have been found damaged after delivery to docks in sound condition; and what action he proposes to take to safeguard these important exports.

Sir D. Eccles

I have read the Press reports on this subject and am sorry to inform the House that there has recently been some wilful damage at the docks to 21 cars. This is being investigated by the Port of London Authority.
