§ 8. Mr. Watkinson
asked the Parliamentary Secretary to the Admiralty whether submarines with fast submerged 917 speeds are now freely available for training exercises with anti-submarine flotillas.
§ Mr. Callaghan
A number of fast submarines are available, but I shall not be satisfied until we have more.
§ Mr. Watkinson
I am glad to hear that, but the Parliamentary Secretary did tell the House the other day that he was giving the utmost priority to new devices for anti-submarine warfare, and I hope that those new devices will not be available to crews who cannot be trained because of the lack of targets.
