§ Mr. C. Ian Orr-Ewing
My noble Friend said on 11th July last that these two assault ships, H.M.S. "Fearless" and "Intrepid", would join the Fleet in about three years' time—that is, in 1965. There is no reason to alter that forecast.
§ Mr. Orr-Ewing
The assault ship is unique in this country and the U.S.A. So far as I know—I have not got comparable figures—and my hon. Friend will know, 437 they work the shift system more intensely in the United States than we do in this country.
