HC Deb 17 June 1993 vol 226 c714W
Mr. Cousins

To ask the President of the Board of Trade if he will list the shipbuilding yards in the United Kingdom which have access to intervention funding; and where Her Majesty's Government have wholly or partly placed warship orders since 1985.

Mr. Heseltine

[holding answer 15 June 1993]: The following shipbuilders yards in the United Kingdom have access to the shipbuilding intervention fund:

  • Appledore Shipbuilders Ltd.
  • Richard Dunston (Hessle) Ltd.
  • FBM Marine Ltd.
  • Ferguson Shipbuilders Ltd.
  • Harland and Wolff Shipbuilding & Heavy Industries Ltd.
  • Kvaerner Govan Ltd.
  • John Mowlem Construction plc—McTay Marine Division Richards (Shipbuilders) Ltd.
  • Yorkshire Dry Dock Co Ltd.

All yards listed, with the exception of Appledore Shipbuilders Ltd., Ferguson Shipbuilders Ltd. and Yorkshire Dry Dock Ltd have received orders from the Ministry of Defence since 1985. However, as the shipbuilding intervention fund does not apply to orders placed by the Ministry of Defence, no support has been provided in respect of those orders.
