HC Deb 30 June 1971 vol 820 c150W
Mr. Rankin

asked the Secretary of State for Trade and Industry whether he will consider restructuring Upper Clyde Shipbuilders, in order to achieve viability, on the lines of that carried out for the coal industry; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. John Davies

I do not propose to form any conclusions on the future of shipbuilding on the Upper Clyde until I have considered the report of the experts I have appointed to advise me on this matter.
