HC Deb 18 June 1973 vol 858 cc9-10W
Mr. Knox

asked the Secretary of State for Trade and Industry what has been the expenditure on investment grants to firms for the purchase of ships in each of the past 10 years in the United Kingdom and on Clydeside, respectively.

Mr. Anthony Grant

Annual figures of investment grants paid towards the cost of provision of new ships under Section 5 of the Industrial Development Act 1966 in the initial year 1967–68 and later years to 1971–72 are published in the annual reports made under the Act. The figure for 1972–73 was £99 million. Separate figures for ships built in the United Kingdom or on Clydeside are not available.
