HC Deb 29 July 1965 vol 717 cc156-7W
50. Mr. McMaster

asked the President of the Board of Trade if he will take steps to ensure that British shipping companies and oil companies will obtain the same credit terms in relation to shipbuilding orders placed within the United Kingdom as they are being offered on construction work placed with Great Britain's main shipbuilding competitors abroad; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. Mason

There is at present no evidence that such steps are necessary to secure the competitive position of British shipowners or shipbuilders.
