HC Deb 19 February 1958 vol 582 c144W
58. Mr. Wall

asked the Parliamentary Secretary to the Admiralty whether the recently announced replacement of the old ships of the Fishery Protection Squadron by modern frigates will entail any reduction in the number of ships allocated to the Squadron or to the Squadron's activities.

Mr. R. Allan

No. Six elderly ocean minesweepers will be replaced by four modern frigates and four coastal minesweepers: an increase of two ships. Equipped with these more modern ships the Squadron will increase its activities.
