§ Mr. Donald Stewart
asked the Secretary of State for Scotland if he will list the vessels owned and operated by publicly owned companies on island ferry routes in Scotland; what is the age of each vessel; and if he will specify those vessels for which replacements have been earmarked but not yet ordered.
§ Mr. Younger
Information on the vessels owned by the Scottish Transport Group is in the group's annual report for 1979, sent to all Scottish hon. Members, and in the Caledonian MacBrayne publication "Ships of the Fleet". Copies of the latter, and any further detailed information on the vessels, may be obtained direct from the group. Replacements have not been earmarked or ordered for any vessels now in the fleet.
