HC Deb 27 June 1956 vol 555 c50W
79. Mr. Godman Irvine

asked the Parliamentary Secretary to the Admiralty whether the moorings for the boom defence vessels and nets at Scapa Flow are to be maintained, moved elsewhere as required or abandoned.

Mr. Ward

No moorings for boom defence vessels are laid at Scapa Flow. Boom defence equipment there will either be disposed of or used elsewhere.
