asked the Parliamentary Secretary to the Admiralty whether he will now make a further statement regarding the provision of a graving dock on the River Clyde.

I am unable to make any further statement on this subject at present.

Can the Minister say whether the Committee which has been examining docks and harbours has made any representations in this connection?

Can the hon. Gentleman give no indication at all when some decision will be made on this important matter?

In view of the great importance of this for the Clyde and for Scotland, would the Minister not have a decision made right away to get this graving dock started, so that ships built on the Clyde can be housed in the Clyde and not sent away to foreign lands?
