HC Deb 04 December 1968 vol 774 c499W
Mr. Hector Hughes

asked the Minister of Technology what plans he has to extend the facilities of the River Dee and Aberdeen Harbour so as to enable the shipbuilding yards there to build larger ships than hitherto.

Mr. Fowler

The Shipbuilding Industry Board is ready to consider applications for assistance under the Shipbuilding Industry Act from shipbuilding firms wishing to improve their facilities. Questions about the improvement of port and harbour facilities should be addressed to my right hon. Friend the Minister of Transport.
