29. Mr. Gourlay

asked the Secretary of State for Industry if he will hold discussions to ensure the continuing operation of the yard at Burntisland when the present contract is completed.

Mr. Les Huckfield

British Shipbuilders has discussed the position at Burntisland with my Department. Although there are no further orders in prospect for the yard, British Shipbuiders is using its best endeavours to sell the yard as a going concern, thereby preserving employment.
