HC Deb 21 May 1968 vol 765 c64W
59. Mr. Kenneth Lewis

asked the Minister of Overseas Development whether he will make available to the Gibraltar Government a special grant to enable them to purchase s.s. "Caronia" from the Cunard Company for a tourist hotel or similar purposes.

Mr. Prentice

I am willing to give full consideration to any schemes put forward by the Government of Gibraltar for the development of tourism. I should, of course, have to consider whether the schemes would be economically viable. It seems doubtful whether this particular scheme would be.
