§ 4. Mr. Eadie
asked the Minister of Technology what help has been sought from his Department arising from the vibrations that have taken place in supertankers as a result of heavy seas.
§ Mr. Fowler
The British Ship Research Association which receives a substantial grant from the Department is working on this problem. They have proposed a method of neutralising wave-induced vibration and have placed a design study contract with a firm of shipbuilders.
