Vol. 239 No. 6

Ceisteanna—Questions. Oral Answers. - Verolme Dockyard.


asked the Minister for Industry and Commerce whether any of the loan of £2.9 million voted to Mr. Cornelis Verolme by the permanent representatives of the ECSC will be utilised for the expansion of Verolme Dockyard.

From reports I have seen the ECSC loan has been granted to the Dutch ship-building company, Verolme, towards the financing and construction of a new giant basin, and redeveloping a dock in the shipyard at Rotterdam.

What is the ECSC?

The European Coal and Steel Community.

Is the Minister aware if any of this money is available for investment in this country?

I am not so aware.
