HC Deb 11 February 1982 vol 17 c418W
Mr. Adley

asked the Secretary of State for Defence if he has been consulted about the proposal to moor a liquid petroleum gas tanker near to his Department's installation in the Solent; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. Blaker

I understand that the British Transport Docks Board, Southampton, is considering proposals for the mooring of a liquid petroleum gas tanker in the Solent Since the proposed site is outside the limits of the dockyard port of Portsmouth the specific agreement of the Ministry of Defence is not required, but there is a Royal Navy representative on a local working party set up by the docks board to consider the issues involved.
