HC Deb 18 December 1935 vol 307 c1768W
Captain PLUGGE

asked the Parliamentary-Secretary to the Admiralty whether, in view of the special facilities available at Chatham for destroyer constructional work and of its high standard of rapid output, he proposes to construct the majority of the seven new destroyers at Chatham dockyard?


There are no special facilities for building destroyers at Chatham dockyard. Contracts for the seven new destroyers will be placed with private shipbuilding yards.
