HC Deb 25 June 1976 vol 913 cc467-8W
Mr. MacCormick

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland whether he will give consideration to the introduction of a road equivalent tariff on ferries; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. Gregor Mackenzie

My right hon. Friend takes the view that charges should continue to be related to the cost of providing shipping services in order to reduce the risk of misuse of resources and to limit calls upon the Exchequer.
