HC Deb 27 March 1968 vol 761 c281W
69. Mr. Leadbitter

asked the President of the Board of Trade what proposals he now has to encourage British shipowners or United Kingdom subsidiaries of foreign shipowners receiving investment grants to build ships in British shipyards.

Mr. J. P. W. Mallalieu

I hope that the reorganisation of the shipbuilding industry which the Government are assisting through the Shipbuilding Industry Act will mean that both British and foreign controlled companies will increasingly place their orders in United Kingdom yards.
