I announced today a consultation by my Department on a proposal to remove our objection to lifting a grant condition which precludes the use of the City Cruise Terminal for turnaround calls, in return for a partial repayment of grant. This proposal reflects my broad provisional assessment of the balance of economic benefits to the Liverpool City Region and the impact on fair competition with terminals elsewhere. The consultation provides an opportunity for respondents to express views on the economic, employment, tourism and other impacts of this proposed measure.
