§ Mr. Charles Kennedy
To ask the Secretary of State for Scotland when he expects to respond to Caledonian MacBrayne's corporate plan for 1992 to 1995; and if he will make a statement.
§ Lord James Douglas-Hamilton
My right hon. Friend has already responded to Caledonian MacBrayne's corporate plan for 1992 to 1996 in approving the company's capital expenditure proposals for 1993–94, 1994–95 and 1995–96, increasing the company's external financing limit over the three years by a total of £10.5 million and fixing the level of deficit subsidy for 1993–94 at £7.165 million.
