asked the Prime Minister whether he is aware of the great usefulness of the Froude national tank at Teddington to shipping designs; that owing to congestion of work ship-owners have on many occasions been compelled to have their designs tested abroad; and whether he will direct the attention of the Economic Advisory Council to the need of a second tank with a view to assisting one of the most important of our industries?

Member for Moseley (Mr. Hannon), from which he will see that the construction of a second tank at Teddington has already been approved, and that the necessary plans and designs are in active preparation.
