My Lords, in November 2001 the Secretary of State announced his decision to award grant towards the capital cost of setting up a new ferry service between Rosyth and Zeebrugge. The scheme has since been refined. The Government will now pay £10.9 million to Forth Ports plc to assist with the cost of a ro-ro terminal for the new service. No grant money will be paid to the Greek ferry operator, Superfast Ferries.
