HC Deb 06 May 1968 vol 764 cc8-9W
Mr. Wingfield Digby

asked the Minister of Technology whether he will give a list of shipyards and ship-repair yards to which he has authorised the Shipbuilding Industry Board to give grants or loans, respectively.

Mr. Benn

The following have been announced; loans of £5½ million to Upper Clyde Shipbuilders Limited together with grants in relief of interest payable on these loans up to the end of 1970; loans of up to £8 million to Harland and Wolff Limited; and the Shipbuilding Industry Board has with my approval agreed in principle to assist financially in the provision of facilities on the Tyne to build the large tankers on order there.
