HC Deb 22 December 1971 vol 828 cc338-9W
46. Mr. Lawson

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland how far his Department is involved in the current examination into the advisability of establishing a deep-water ore terminal at Hunterston; what progress has been made; when it is expected that a decision will be announced; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. Gordon Campbell

I have approved the zoning of land for this purpose. The project itself is a matter for the British Steel Corporation and the Clyde Port Authority in the first instance and I understand that it is still under consideration.
