§ 17. Mr. Brotherton
asked the Secretary of State for Defence when he expects HMS "Bulwark" to be recommissioned.
§ Mr. Brotherton
Is the Minister aware that that reply will be received with regret? Will he say how the Government propose to transport the Royal Marines in future bearing in mind that there is no "Bulwark" and no "Albion", and that the "Hermes" is engaged on antisubmarine duties? Do the Government intend to use British Rail ferries?
