HC Deb 11 July 1985 vol 82 cc491-2W
Mr. Deakins

asked the Secretary of State for Trade and Industry if Her Majesty's Government will introduce measures to promote the continuance of a body of expertise in building research vessels in one British shipyard.

Mr. Butcher

We have no plans to do so. This is a matter for the commercial judgment of the British shipbuilding industry.
