§ Mr. Wigley
asked the Secretary of State for Transport what response he is making to representatives from the Gwynedd county council and others, about the improvement of facilities at the port of Holyhead; and if he will make a statement on the policy of Her Majesty's Government relating to the future upgrading of the port.
§ Mr. Eyre
Investment decisions at the port of Holyhead are matters primarily for the British Railways Board and its subsidiary Sealink Harbours Ltd. which owns and operates the port. My Department has received representations from Gwynedd county council about the possibility of EEC support for investment at Holyhead. I shall write to the hon. Gentleman about that shortly.
