HC Deb 22 December 1988 vol 144 c448W
14. Mr. Tony Lloyd

To ask the Secretary of State for Northern Ireland what steps he is presently taking to secure the Ultimate Dream cruise liner project for Harland and Wolff.

Mr. Viggers

Senior managers at Harland and Wolff are considering whether the Ultimate Dream, or other orders, could provide the basis for a buy-out by managers and employees at the yard. I have had discussions with these managers, but, as yet, no firm proposals have been tabled.
