asked the Civil Lord of the Admiralty what have been the results 118W of the gunnery trials of H.M.S. "Blake"; and whether troubles with the 6-inch turrets have been eliminated.
§ Mr. C. Ian Orr-Ewing
The results of H.M.S. "Blake's" recent pre-acceptance gunnery trials were satisfactory. As I informed my hon. Friend on 26th October, the sources of trouble in the 6-inch mountings of the Tiger "Class have been analysed and the necessary modifications are being undertaken as the opportunity occurs.
