§ Mr. Wingfield Digby
asked the Minister of Transport whether he had approved the choice of propelling machinery for the replacement of the "Queen Mary" before the Cunard Company decided, last October, not to proceed with the replacement.
§ Mr. Marples
Cunard postponed its decision on the replacement of the "Queen Mary" before I was called upon to approve their choice of main machinery. But I understand that it had chosen turbines of PAMETRADA design.
