asked the Minister of Transport if he is aware of the concern which is being caused by the small number of ships which are now being discharged at Penryn; and whether he will take steps to remedy this situation.

It is not within my power to remedy the reduction of imports and the shortage of suitable vessels from which Penryn and other small ports are suffering. I have, however, been in communication with the Timber Control of the Board of Trade, who recently arranged for a vessel to discharge timber cargo at Penryn.
