§ The Minister of State for Colonial Affairs (Mr. Henry Hopkinson)
This project was discussed last month with the Governor when he was in London. Various technical questions arising out of the consulting engineers' report have since been examined in detail with the Service Departments concerned, and I am now asking the Governor for his further views on the financial and technical aspects of the proposals.
§ Mr. Hopkinson
Yes, Sir. The Admiralty has been considering the question of private bunkering or bunker-age for commercial purposes. At a meeting of the Gibraltar Co-Ordinating Committee on 7th of this month it was decided that the Minister of Fuel and Power should be asked to assist in further discussions with the two oil companies concerned.
