HC Deb 17 April 1972 vol 835 cc9-10W
56. Mr. Willey

asked the Secretary of State for Trade and Industry whether, in view of the Government aid being given to the shipbuilding industry, he will now make a further statement on the ship repair industry.

Mr. Chataway

The Government have no plans to give special assistance to the ship repairing industry. However, the industry will benefit, in common with other industries, from the measures recently described in the White Paper on Industrial and Regional Development.
