§ 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 339W Clyde Port Authority in the first instance and I understand that it is still under consideration.
