HC Deb 07 February 1979 vol 962 c196W
Mr. MacCormick

asked the Secretary of State for Defence if the coming refit of HMS "Walrus" will be carried out at Rosyth.

Mr. Duffy

The refitting of conventional submarines at Rosyth has fallen behind programme. Consequently, whilst it had been intended that HMS "Walrus" should be refitted there, consideration is now being given to having this work done in another Royal dockyard. This would enable Rosyth to devote more effort to other work in its heavily loaded programme.
