HC Deb 10 December 1964 vol 703 cc215-6W
59. Mr. Galbraith

asked the President of the Board of Trade what information has has received, from international organisations to which the United Kingdom belongs, as to the average labour cost as a proportion of the total cost of building a ship in Great Britain, Germany, Sweden, and Japan, respectively.

Mr. Mason

An expert Working Party of the O.E.C.D. Industry Committee is at present studying shipbuilding. Its report, which is expected shortly, will doubtless contain some information about labour costs.
