HC Deb 11 February 1980 vol 978 cc437-9W
Mr. Grylls

asked the Secretary of State for Industry whether British Shipbuilders is expected to remain within its loss limit

of money supply and the price index used, as well as the choice of quarter for making annual comparisons.

for the financial year 1979–80; and if he will make a statement on British Shipbuilders' results for the nine months ended 31 December 1979.

Mr. Adam Butler

Yes. British Shipbuilders' most recent public financial statement was its interim statement for the six months ended 30 September, in which it expressed its belief that its trading loss for the full financial year 1979–80 would be within the loss limit set by the Secretary of State.
