HC Deb 07 April 1970 vol 799 cc46-7W
50. Mr. Robert Howarth

asked the Minister of Transport if he will agree to an independent valuation being made of the assets and earnings of the Manchester Ship Canal Company in view of the dispute over the terms of compensation for this company under the Ports Bill.

Mr. Mulley

No. I see no reason to depart from the Stock Exchange valuation basis usual in cases of this kind.
