To ask the Secretary of State for Transport with reference to the consultation document on the proposal to remove objections to lifting a grant condition regarding the use of the City of Liverpool Cruise Terminal published on 7 July 2011, whether he assessed the value for money of the proposed partial repayment of public funds; and if he will make a statement.

This proposal reflects a judgment that weighs the prospective benefits from extending the use of the terminal, together with partial repayment of grant, against considerations of fair competition with other terminals. The local and regional benefits, for which the grants were originally paid, could increase if turnaround use is allowed. The consultation is an opportunity for anyone to express views on this.
