HL Deb 16 October 1984 vol 455 c971
Baroness Vickers

asked Her Majesty's Government:

Whether, since the new Type 22 frigates are being named after towns, they will consider naming one such frigate HMS Plymouth, in view of the fact that Type 22 ships will be based at HM Dockland, Plymouth.

Lord Trefgarne

Names for the remaining Type 22s have already been selected and approved. However, the name Plymouth will be considered, if a suitable opportunity arises. The present HMS Plymouth is planned to run on until at least 1985 and possibly longer.
