§ Mr. Concannon
Yes. Harland and Wolff has recently concluded a commercial agreement with Maschinenfabrik-Augsburg-Nurnburg (MAN) to build and market medium-speed diesel engines. Manufacture of these engines will provide an indigenous source of supply for engines which would otherwise need to be imported into the United Kingdom, and there will also be export opportunities. This project should eventually safeguard some 400 jobs in the engine works. The position of the works remains serious, however, and with my backing the company will continue to make every effort to secure additional orders.
