26. Mr. Edward M. Taylor
asked the Minister of Technology if he will make a further statement on the position of Upper Clyde Shipbuilders.
Would the right hon. Gentleman agree that the best way to squash the ill-founded and mischievous rumours circulating last week about the continued survival of Upper Clyde Shipbuilders would be for the firm to obtain some new orders? Would the Shipbuilding Industry Board and his Ministry give every possible assistance to the company in its current search for new work?
