HC Deb 02 December 1980 vol 995 c112W
28. Mr. Douglas

asked the Secretary of State for Defence if he will report on the progress being made on implementing the report on the future of the Royal dockyards.

Mr. Speed

The consultative document about the study of the Royal dockyards on which views were requested to reach us by October, elicited a wide response from organisations and individuals. These are now being considered as part of the on-going work required before the Government will be in a position to take further decisions.
