§ Brigadier Clarke
asked the Civil Lord of the Admiralty if he will now give consideration to building a Royal Navy fleet replenishment tanker fitted with a British-designed marine reactor.
§ Mr. Hay
The possibilities of nuclear propulsion for surface ships continue to receive the active consideration of the Admiralty, but the reasons given in reply to my hon. and gallant Friend on 31st January, 1963, why nuclear propulsion has not been adopted for Fleet replenishment tankers still apply.
