HC Deb 03 March 1969 vol 779 c39W
82. Mr. Wingfield Digby

asked the Minister of Technology what additional financial help, and in what form, the Shipbuilding Industry Board propose to give to Upper Clyde Shipbuilders; and whether he intends to sanction it.

Mr. Fowler

Discussions between the Shipbuilding Industry Board and individual companies about assistance under the Shipbuilding Industry Act are proceeding all the while and the board seeks my right hon. Friend's approval for loans and grants at the appropriate stage. I do not consider it would be right for me to reveal details of these discussions.
