HC Deb 10 February 1960 vol 617 c43W
56. Sir A. V. Harvey

asked the Civil Lord of the Admiralty how many Seamew aircraft are surplus; how many hours they have flown since they were new; and to what use these aircraft are to be put.

Mr. C. Ian Orr-Ewing

We have nineteen Seamew aircraft surplus. They have not flown in the naval service. The makers and the Admiralty have tried to sell them for further use but without success, and the aircraft are to be scrapped.
