HC Deb 09 March 1966 vol 725 c525W
75. Mr. Wingfield Digby

asked the Secretary of State for Defence what type of reactor the new package-type reactor designed for the Royal Navy will be.

Mr. J. P. W. Mallalieu

Besides the improvement of our existing submarine reactors, we are studying the possible development of a new submarine reactor, and the application of nuclear propulsion to surface warships. Until these studies are complete we will not decide what new types of reactor would best suit the needs of the Navy.
