HC Deb 26 January 1981 vol 997 c296W
Mr. Sproat

asked the Secretary of State for Defence, in the light of his statement on 20 January on defence spending, if the order for two minesweepers, placed with Hall Russell, in Aberdeen, will now go ahead.

Mr. Speed

No order for minesweepers has been placed with Hall Russell Ltd. Tenders from a number of shipbuilders, including Hall Russell, were submitted last year, and a decision on these vessels will be made as soon as possible.
