§ Mr. Hector Hughes
asked the Minister of Transport if he has now considered the report of the joint working party set up by him last January to consider and report on the pontoon dock facilities at Aberdeen; what consultations he has had on it with the Admiralty and the Scottish Office; and if he will now take steps, as indicated in paragraph XI, page 6, of the report, to arrange a meeting of those Ministers and the working party to consider the report in continuation of the discussions which took place in London on 5th November, 1959.
§ Mr. Marples
The report reached me only on 29th June and is now being studied. Consultation with the other Departments concerned will follow. I cannot at this early stage anticipate the further action which I shall take.
