HC Deb 14 November 1934 vol 293 c1941
15. Miss WARD

asked the First Lord of the Admiralty whether he is yet in a position to announce the placing of the contracts for two cruisers for which tenders have been invited?


Subject to the settlement of certain points of detail, it has been decided to entrust the construction of these two cruisers to Vickers-Armstrong, Limited, and to Scotts Shipbuilding and Engineering Company, Limited, of Greenock. The hull of the vessel allocated to Vickers-Armstrong will be built at Walker-on-Tyne, and the machinery at Barrow.


Can the Noble Lord announce the contracts for the mine sweeper sloops?


The tenders have not yet been received. I have not yet received them.
