HC Deb 19 February 1969 vol 778 c104W
70. Dame Joan Vickers

asked the Secretary of State for Defence whether he will make a further statement concerning the future of the aircraft carriers.

Mr. Healey

The Government's plans for the aircraft carriers remain unchanged, that is to say they will be phased-out after our military withdrawals from Malaysia, Singapore and the Persian Gulf have been completed in December, 1971.
