HC Deb 26 March 1969 vol 780 c302W
Mr. Wingfield Digby

asked the Secretary of State for Defence how the cost of Leander class frigates built in the Royal Dockyards compares with that of those built in commercial shipyards.

Mr. John Morris

The latest ships for which comparisons are available are H.M.S. "Danae" built at Devonport Dockyard, costing £5,830,000, and H.M. Ships "Juno" and "Argonaut" built by commercial shipyards, costing £5 million each. These ships were completed in the 1967–68 financial year.
