HC Deb 02 March 1955 vol 537 c278W
86. Mr. Bottomley

asked the First Lord of the Admiralty to make a statement about the tampering with the oil supply in the port main gearing of H.M.S. "Grenville" in the Royal Naval Dockyard, Chatham.

Commander Noble

During the refit of Her Majesty's Ship "Grenville" at Chatham Dockyard, sand was discovered in the oil supply to the port main gearing. Careful inquiries have been made but I am not at present in a postion to indicate any firm conclusions. No damage was caused.
