§ 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.
