HC Deb 07 April 1954 vol 526 c39W
70. Mr. Langford-Holt

asked the First Lord of the Admiralty for what reason it is proposed that H.M.S. "Perseus" shall proceed from Portsmouth to Glasgow on or about 12th April, returning to Portsmouth two days later, prior to sailing to Singapore; and what is the total cost of this visit.

Mr. J. P. L. Thomas

H.M.S. "Perseus" is to embark aircraft in Glasgow on 13th and 14th April. She will return to Portsmouth for the Easter weekend before sailing for a trooping and aircraft ferrying trip to the Far East. The cost of this arrangement will be about £900.
