asked the Secretary of State for Wales what is his estimate of the effect upon the Mostyn dock of the recently announced Shotton steel closure measures; and if he will make a statement.

I understand that the cargo from Shotton steelworks which is handled by the Mostyn dock consists of finished steel, and represents a very small proportion of the dock's total trade. I have no reason for supposing that Mostyn dock will be affected by the closure of steelmaking at Shotton.
