§ 25. Mr. Monslow
asked the Civil Lord of the Admiralty what action he is taking to make security arrangements at Barrow shipyard more effective as a result of the recent incident in which unauthorised persons entered the shipyard and daubed with paint H.M. submarine "Dreadnought".
§ Mr. C. Ian Orr-Ewing
The security arrangements are aimed primarily at protecting the classified equipment in the "Dreadnought". For this purpose they were, and are, satisfactory. The Admiralty has recently discussed these arrangements with the builders, who are responsible for security in their yard, and they are providing some additional deterrents against this sort of prank.
