HC Deb 02 December 1983 vol 49 c627W
Mr. Malone

asked the Secretary of State for Transport when he will reach a decision on the proposal to reconstitute the Aberdeen Pilotage Authority.

Mr. David Mitchell

As my hon. Friend knows, I have written to him at some length on this matter. I hope to reach a conclusion before too long, but the issues are complex and may not be easy to resolve.
