HC Deb 15 December 1954 vol 535 cc146-7W
74. Sir I. Clark Hutchison

asked the First Lord of the Admiralty if he will make a statement on the future of the Naval Ordnance Inspection Department.

Mr. J. P. L. Thomas

I regret I cannot make a statement at present. The problem has become even more involved because it is now bound up with our review of the whole of the officer structure of the Royal Navy. I can assure my hon. and gallant Friend that, as soon as I have anything to report, I will do so.
