60. Dame Irene Ward

asked the Secretary of State for Trade and Industry whether he will investigate the desirability of assisting in the modernisation of marine engineering, with a view to reestablishing it to its old position of supremacy in world markets.

Mr. Anthony Grant

My Department is in close touch with firms in this industry. Aid for modernisation would be available under Industry Act terms.
