HC Deb 23 March 1967 vol 743 cc328-9W
Mr. Judd

asked the Secretary of State for Defence how many man hours in each department at each Royal Naval Dockyard were spent on waiting time in each of the past eight weeks.

Mr. Foley

The information is as follows:

within the next few days; and what is the Royal Navy's estimated total requirement for dealing with the "Torrey Canyon" incident.

Mr. Foley

Some 6,500 gallons of oil emulsifier were immediately available to the forces engaged in dealing with pollution from the "Torrey Canyon" on Saturday, 18th March. The rate of supply since then has been approximately 39,000 gallons per day. This rate is increasing as production and supply facilities improve. I cannot predict the total requirement but for the time being the supplies coming forward are well matched to the rate of use and no shortage is fore-seen.
