§ 50. Mr. McMaster
asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer what measures he intends to take during the current financial year to assist the British shipbuilding and shipping industries to improve their 172W profitability and rate of capital investment and expansion, in order that they may be in a better position to meet low-taxed foreign competition; and if he will make a statement.
§ Mr. Callaghan
The problems of these industries are being looked at by the Shipbuilding Enquiry Committee and in other studies which are also taking place. I shall await their conclusions.
