38. Mr. George Jeger

asked the Minister of Technology what further consideration he has given to the deteriorating situation of the shipyards outside development areas; and if he will propose measures for assisting their survival, especially in districts of high unemployment.

Mr. Benn

I shall be writing shortly to my hon. Friend about the suggestion he made at a recent meeting for further help for yards outside development areas.
