Mr. Price:

The Government have advanced £2·85 million towards the total cost estimated at £4·25 million. The dock was expected to accommodate ships of the largest sizes contemplated at the time when assistance was offered. I understand that there are larger repair docks in other countries but no other dry dock of comparable capacity in the United Kingdom.
