HC Deb 05 December 1979 vol 975 cc198-9W
Mr. W. E. Garrett

asked the Secretary of State for Defence if he will discuss with British Shipbuilders the future role of the supply ship completed on the Tyne for the Iranian Navy, in view of its availability for use in any possible hostilities against the United States Navy.

Mr. Pym

Work by British Shipbuilders is still in hand on this Fleet replenishment ship, so the question of its availability for use by the purchaser does not yet arise.
