HC Deb 29 November 1966 vol 737 c73W
Captain Kerby

asked the Secretary of State for Defence what is the estimated cost of the conversions of Her Majesty's Ships "Lion" and "Blake"; and when work on them will be completed.

Mr. J. P. W. Mallalieu

The conversion and concurrent refit of H.M.S. "Blake" is expected to cost about £5 million, and to be completed towards the end of 1968. Work on the second Tiger Class Cruiser is likely to be completed in 1969, and to cost about the same.
