Will the right hon. Gentleman give a thought to those of my constituents who built HMS "Invincible"? Will he consider a further through-deck cruiser order for the Tyne shipyards? In addition, will he step in and stop this humiliating public Dutch auction over the "Atlantic Conveyor" and give the men the work that they deserve? Is he aware that unemployment in that area exceeds 30 per cent.?
