§ Mr. Trotter
asked the Secretary of State for Industry what were the trading results of North East Coast Shiprepairers Ltd. for the year ended 30th September 1975; how they compared with those for the previous year; and, from the information made available to him by the company, what is the trend of profit or loss for the year to 30th September 1976.
§ Mr. Les Huckfield
The trading results of North East Coast Shiprepairers Ltd. for the year to 30th September 1975 and the previous year appear in the company's annual report for 1975, a copy of which has been placed in the Library. Disclosure of the company's forecasts of trading results for the current financial year would be contrary to its commercial interest.
