HC Deb 07 March 1962 vol 655 c63W
15. Sir J. Langford-Holt

asked the Civil Lord of the Admiralty what have been the results of his Departmental inquiry into the need for the maintenance by his Department of over 1,000 moorings.

Mr. C. Ian Orr-Ewing

The review is not yet complete, but we have reduced the number of moorings by 100 and we expect a total reduction of over 200. We have also introduced a modified standard of maintaining moorings, and it is estimated that this will reduce costs by about another 10 per cent.
