HC Deb 16 February 1970 vol 796 c10W
78. Mr. William Hamilton

asked the Minister of Technology if he will make a statement on the progress of the major reshaping of the shipbuilding industry in the last 12 months; and how this progress has been reflected in statistics on productivity and efficiency.

Dr. Ernest A. Davies

In the past year the industry's main concern has been to build up their order book and prepare for increasing output this year and next. The Shipbuilding and Shiprepairing Council is currently examining methods of assessing productivity in the industry.
