HC Deb 11 November 1968 vol 773 c53W
Mr. Ian Lloyd

asked the Minister of Technology what steps he is taking to ensure that the United Kingdom will be able to drydock super-tankers and similar vessels with a beam exceeding 175 feet.

Mr. Fowler

The question of the costs and benefits of such facilities is primarily for the ship repairing industry who are studying the problem and know that the Department is ready to consider it with them.
