asked the Parliamentary Secretary to the Ministry of War Transport whether any Government-built ships have been allocated to any of the shipping companies; and the system upon which such ships have been, or will be, allotted?

Sixty-one Government built ships have up to date been allocated to British shipowners. As my hon. and gallant Friend will no doubt recall, the system by which allocation is made was explained in Command Paper 6357 presented to Parliament in May, 1942.
