HC Deb 16 November 1960 vol 630 c39W
53. Commander Kerans

asked the Civil Lord of the Admiralty what is the future of H.M.S. "Manxman" and if he will make a statement.

Mr. C. Ian Orr-Ewing

H.M.S. "Manxman" is to be converted to a headquarters and forward support ship for minesweepers. We plan to carry out this work in Chatham Dockyard, starting early in 1961.
