HC Deb 16 February 1973 vol 850 c452W
Mr. Skeet

asked the Secretary of State for Trade and Industry whether, in view of the substantial orders now accruing to shipbuilders' yards in the United Kingdom, he will consider reducing the level of public funds being made available to them.

Mr. Chataway

Whilst the improvement in the United Kingdom shipbuilding order book is welcome, a statement on future Government policy towards the industry must await the outcome of our consideration of the Booz-Allen Report.
