§ Q109. Dr. Godman
asked the Prime Minister when she now expects Her Majesty's Government to place the order promised to Scott Lithgow at the time an order was awarded to Vickers, Barrow in Furness for the construction of conventional submarines; and if she will make a statement.
§ The Prime Minister
It is the Government's wish to place these orders with Scott Lithgow, provided the company meets the terms outlined by my hon. Friend on 28 January 1986 at column449. Negotiations are still continuing with the company.
