§ Dr. Godman
asked the Secretary of State for Trade and Industry how many ships have been built in shipbuilding yards of each EEC member state with the assistance of funds from the European shipbuilding intervention fund with engines supplied from non-EEC member states in each of the past five years; what has been the total value of EEC aid given in such cases; and if he will make a statement.
§ Mr. Giles Shaw
[pursuant to his reply, 12 March 1987, c. 276]: There is no support for merchant shipbuilding paid to member states from European Community funds. Each member state administers a regime of aid which is agreed with the European Commission within the framework of successive Council directives on shipbuilding aids. The number of vessels built with non-EEC engines, which received shipbuilding intervention fund support from Her Majesty's Government since 1982 is as follows:
Number 1982 2 1983 — 1984 1 1985 6 1986 3
