HC Deb 01 December 1966 vol 737 c138W
Mr. Ian Lloyd

asked the Minister of Technology if he will make a statement on the present financial position of Fair-fields, in view of the public money which has been invested in it.

Mr. Benn

As the Government announced at the time, it is their intention that Fairfields (Glasgow) Limited, should operate its shipyard on a normal commercial basis and no special provision was made for the submission of accounts. The company will no doubt file their annual return together with their accounts as required by the Companies Act in due course.
