HC Deb 30 May 1962 vol 660 cc125-6W
50. Mr. Strauss

asked the Minister of Transport what proposals he has received from the United States authorities to overcome the deadlock between the American Maritime Commission and the eight British shipping lines.

Vice-Admiral Hughes Hallett

None, but I understand that a representative of the lines concerned had a useful discussion on Monday with the Chairman of the Federal Maritime Commission and that there are prospects of a solution satisfactory to everyone concerned.
