HC Deb 12 April 1976 vol 909 c402W
Mr. Frank Allaun

asked the Secretary of State for Defence if he intends to place an order for a second anti-submarine war cruiser; and what will be its cost with and without its complement of aircraft respectively.

Mr. William Rodgers

We expect to announce the order within the next few weeks. It is not our practice to disclose the cost of warships before their acceptance into service.
