§ 85. Mr. P. Williams
asked the Parliamentary Secretary to the Admiralty how many orders for new ships have been placed in the first two months of 1959; what is the tonnage involved for United Kingdom yards; and what are the figures for yards in the north-east.
§ Mr. T. G. D. Galbraith
Information of orders obtained by United Kingdom yards is reported to the Admiralty at the end of each quarter. In the latter half of April I shall have information of orders for January, February and March together but I shall not have separate information for the first two months alone.
