HC Deb 22 May 1963 vol 678 c38W
Mr. Burden

asked the Civil Lord of the Admiralty what is the estimated labour cost of building an Oberon class submarine in Chatham Royal Navy Dockyard and a private dockyard. respectively.

Mr. Hay

It is not possible to compare direct labour costs in this way. But total costs in private yards and in the Royal Navy Dockyard at Chatham are not materially out of line.
