HC Deb 06 December 1961 vol 650 c163W
66. Mr. Burden

asked the Civil Lord of the Admiralty how much money has been spent on the modernisation and re-equipment of Chatham Dockyard in the last ten years.

Mr. C. Ian Orr-Ewing

Over the past ten years about £5¾ million has been spent on modernising and re-equipping buildings, machinery and plant at Chatham Dockyard. This investment is a measure of the confidence we put in the long-term future of this yard.
