HC Deb 27 July 1993 vol 229 cc761-2W
Mr. Win Griffiths

To ask the Chancellor of the Duchy of Lancaster how much money was raised by Research Vessel Services (Barry) in commissioned research and charter income in each of the last three years; and what is the estimated income from this source in the 1993–94 financial year.

Mr. David Davis

Research Vessels Services does not itself carry out commissioned research. Charter receipts are as follows:

Year Charter Receipts (£k)
1990–91 35
1991–92 0
1992–93 348
1993–94 91


1. The 1992–93 figure is provisional, as the council's accounts for that year have not yet been audited.

2. The 1993–94 figure is an estimated one.
