HC Deb 22 July 1980 vol 989 c635W
Mr. Donald Stewart

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland how many additional ships would be required if he decided to introduce road equivalent tariff for island shipping services.

Mr. Younger

Such a number would depend on the amount and time of any additional travel generated by road equivalent tariff. I have this point in mind now and shall be considering it further in the light of comments on the consultative paper "Sea Transport to the Scottish Islands".
