HC Deb 18 February 1958 vol 582 c135W
Captain Kerby

asked the Parliamentary Secretary to the Admiralty why he disposed of 30 or more frigates of the "River" class in view of the successful conversion of Canadian Navy ships of this class to meet modern anti-submarine requirements.

Mr. Allan

The Admiralty's programme for poducing modern antisubmarine frigates by conversion has been completed. "River" class frigates were not the most suitable ones available to us for conversion.
