HC Deb 24 June 1999 vol 333 c427W
Mr. Öpik

To ask the Secretary of State for Northern Ireland what plans the Government have for any sum exceeding the projected £70 million raised from the proposed privatisation of Belfast Harbour; and if she will make a statement. [88118]

Mr. Paul Murphy

The scheme for transferring Belfast Port to the private sector has not yet been finalised and no plans beyond the £70 million assumed in the Northern Ireland estimates for 1999–2000 have therefore been made.
