HC Deb 31 July 1946 vol 426 c208W
129. Group-Captain Wilcock

asked the First Lord of the Admiralty whether, in view of the result of the underwater atom bomb test at Bikini, he will now consider the cessation of all construction work on capital ships and concentrate instead on the building of small ships including a larger percentage of small carriers.

Mr. Dugdale

The question does not arise as no capital ships are under construction.
