HC Deb 10 April 1978 vol 947 c315W
31. Mr. Burden

asked the Secretary of State for Industry, further to his reply to the hon. Member for Christchurch and Lymington (Mr. Adley), Official Report, 16th January 1978, c. 19–20, how many British shipowners have to date approached the intervention fund for assistance similar to that accorded to the Polish shipowners, and how many have been granted assistance on comparable terms.

Mr. Kaufman

Assistance from the shipbuilding intervention fund is given to shipbuilders, not shipowners.
