HC Deb 06 May 1966 vol 727 c160W
Captain Kerby

asked the Secretary of State for Defence what plans he has for the eventual replacement of H.M.S. "Protector" for duties in the Antarctic, in view of the fact that this ship is now 30 years old; and if he will give an assurance that there are long-term plans to continue naval support of British interests there.

Mr. Healey

The provision of a suitable ship to replace H.M.S. "Protector" is under consideration.
