HC Deb 06 July 1970 vol 803 c1W
14. Mr. Blenkinsop

asked the Minister of Technology whether he will make a statement on the future of the ship repair industry and, in particular, regarding the agreement reached in connection with Palmers Yard in Hebburn.

Mr. Ridley

My right hon. Friend expects shortly to receive advice from the Shipbuilding and Ship Repairing Council about the industry. He wishes to study this advice before making any statement.
