HC Deb 29 June 1982 vol 26 c280W
Mr. Trotter

asked the Secretary of State for Defence whether in the light of recent experience in connection with the Falkland Islands operation, he will reconsider the possibility of retaining three carriers rather than two, so as to ensure that a minimum of two are always available for operation.

Mr. Blaker

We are considering this carefully.
