HC Deb 11 December 1959 vol 615 c81W
Dr. A. Thompson

asked the Civil Lord of the Admiralty when Scotland will be allocated another home-based cruiser to replace H.M.S. "Gambia", which is scheduled to go into reserve.

Mr. C. Ian Orr-Ewing

For technical reasons, the Tiger Class will be based on southern ports. No cruiser will be allocated to Rosyth after H.M.S. "Gambia" but a number of other ships are likely to be based on Rosyth additional to those for whom Rosyth is already their home port.
