§ Mr. Bessell
asked the Minister of Transport whether he will introduce legislation to amend the Transport Act 1962 so as to prevent unfair competition between coastal shipping and British Railways.
§ Mr. Tom Fraser
Section 53 of the Transport Act 1962 was enacted to provide safeguards for coastal shipping 185W against unfair competition from the railways. If the hon. Member considers these provisions in need of amendment and will suggest how and why, I will look into the matter.
