HC Deb 01 December 1967 vol 755 cc192-3W
Mr. Prior

asked the Minister of Technology what estimate he has made of the advantages in ship-building costs which accrue to a shipyard inside a development district drawing both regional employment premium and Selective Employment Tax premium as compared with a shipyard outside a development area.

Mr. Benn

Probably about 2 per cent. on average of the total cost of a ship.
