§ Captain Kerby
asked the Parliamentary Secretary to the Admiralty the original cost, and subsequent refitting and maintenance costs, of the nine fast patrol boats of the Proud class.
§ Mr. R. Allan
The original cost was of the order of £60,000 per craft. They were refitted in 1951–52 at an approximate cost of £16,000 per craft. Since then no dockyard maintenance costs have been incurred.
