HC Deb 27 July 1960 vol 627 c159W
88. Mr. Shinwell

asked the Minister of Transport whether he has given any further consideration to the position of British shipping; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. Marples

I am constantly striving to safeguard the interests and particularly the competitive freedom of the British shipping industry. The General Council of British Shipping has given me a comprehensive survey of the current position and problems of the different sections of the industry. I intend to discuss this when the General Council is ready.
