§ 33. Mr. Wingfield Digby
asked the Secretary of State for Defence how many of Her Majesty's ships, apart from H.M.S. "Protector", and from what stations, have visited the Falkland Islands during each of the last three years; and what plans he has for such visits during the coming year.
§ Mr. Healey
No visits were paid in 1965. Two frigates from the former South Atlantic and South American Station visited Port Stanley in 1966. One frigate of the Western Fleet visited the Islands in 1967.
As regards the second part of the Question, it is not the custom to disclose future dispositions of the Fleet.
