HC Deb 20 May 1993 vol 225 c290W
16. Mr. Nicholls

To ask the Secretary of State for Northern Ireland when he will announce his conclusions on the draft Ports (NI) Order 1993 following its consultation period; and how many representations he has received on the parliamentary procedure that should be applied to individual privatisation proposals.

Mr. Atkins

The consultation period ended on 2 April 1993 and I would hope to announce my conclusions by early summer. I have received a total of 52 representations during the consultation process, 18 of which concerned the parliamentary procedure for individual privatisation proposals.
