HL Deb 25 February 1980 vol 405 c1141WA

asked Her Majesty's Government:

What cost has so far fallen upon central Government and local authorities in relation to the sinking of the cargo vessel "Aeolian Sky".


It is not possible at this stage to estimate the expenditure by the Department of Trade and the several local authorities concerned which arises from the sinking of the "Aeolian Sky". Furthermore, much of the recent beach clearance effort has been related to containers which were not carried in that vessel.
