HC Deb 26 July 1971 vol 822 c7W
43. Mr. Wingfield Digby

asked the Secretary of State for Trade and Industry whether he will make a statement on the present position of the authorised shipbuilding credit guarantee schemes.

Ample credit is available for all ships which commence on berth before mid-1973. We intend to make a further announcement before the recess on future arrangements for credit facilities for orders placed in United Kingdom yards by United Kingdom owners.
