HC Deb 06 December 1967 vol 755 c317W
Mr. William Hamilton

asked the Secretary of State for Defence what proportion of the total labour employed at Rosyth Dockyard is directly connected with work on the servicing of nuclear submarines as a North Atlantic Treaty Organisation commitment.

Mr. Foley

Royal Navy nuclear submarines will be refitted at Rosyth. When a nuclear submarine is in hand for refit she will absorb on average about 40 per cent. of the labour force of Rosyth Dockyard. Within N.A.T.O. repair of warships is a national responsibility.
