HC Deb 06 December 1989 vol 163 c302W
111. Mr. Clay

To ask the Secretary of State for Trade and Industry what are his latest intentions concerning the future of North-East Shipbuilders; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. Douglas Hogg

British Shipbuilders are currently in discussion with a number of parties interested in purchasing the assets of North East Shipbuilders Ltd. I hope these discussions will prove fruitful.
