HC Deb 25 May 1976 vol 912 c158W
Mr. Wall

asked the Secretary of State for Defence if he will list the names of Her Majesty's ships due to be sold or scrapped in the current year.

Mr. Duffy

Detailed plans for paying off Her Majesty's ships depend on a number of factors including progress on new construction programmes, the material state of the ships themselves and manpower considerations. Defence White Papers include a list of ships which have been approved for disposal in the previous year. It is too early to say what ships will be sold or scrapped in the year 1976–77.
