46. Commander Maitland
asked the Parliamentary Secretary to the Admiralty whether he will make a statement about the recent activities of H.M.S. "Girdleness", the Royal Navy's guided weapon ship.
§ Mr. Wingfield Digby
Her Majesty's Ship "Girdleness" commissioned on 24th July last, and has since carried out a number of trials. On 10th September, a test missile, from which a sea-to-air guided missile is being developed, was successfully fired. Other successful firings have followed. A photograph is being released to the Press today.
