HC Deb 01 December 1987 vol 123 c508W
Q51. Dr. Godman

To ask the Prime Minister if she has any plans to propose a review of the criteria governing eligibility for assistance through the EEC shipbuilding intervention fund; and if she will make a statement.

The Prime Minister

No. Only in very exceptional circumstances, in particular where vital defence interests were at stake, could intervention fund support be available to any of the yards recently disposed of by British Shipbuilders.
