HC Deb 23 February 1982 vol 18 c365W
Mr. Alton

asked the Secretary of State for Transport what has been the increase or decrease in tonnage handled annually by the ports since the advent of containerisation in 1968 in (a) Southampton, (b) Tilbury, (c) Felixstowe and (d) Liverpool.

Mr. David Howell

Statistics on the tonnage of traffic handled at British seaports for 1980, and annually back to 1965, have been published jointly by the Department and the British Ports Association in "Port Statistics 1980". A copy has been placed in the Library of the House.
