HC Deb 25 May 1960 vol 624 cc47-8W
60. Mr. Wall

asked the Minister of Defence whether, as H.M.S. "Bulwark" is now based on Singapore, he will see that a second commando carrier is provided for the Persian Gulf area.

Mr. Watkinson

Although H.M.S. "Bulwark" is based on Singapore, she is readily available for requirements which may arise anywhere east of Suez.
