HC Deb 04 December 1962 vol 668 c152W
48. Mr. Awbery

asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies if he is now in a position to make a report of the inquiry into Baileys (Malta); what progress has been made in the transformation of the naval dockyard into a commercial one; if any negotiations are taking place with the Bethlehem Steel Corporation about Malta; and if he will make a statement on the present position.

Mr. Sandys

Work on the main conversion contract started in March and is proceeding according to schedule.

On the other matters raised by the hon. Member, I hope to make a statement shortly.
