asked the Minister of Transport if he will give information showing the number and total tonnage of ships sent to foreign yards for repair and refit in 1946 and 1947, respectively; to which yards they have been sent; and the reasons why the work was not done in this country.

My right hon. Friend regrets that he cannot give the information as no record exists of repairs and refits carried out on British ships in foreign yards in the period mentioned.
