HC Deb 29 June 1982 vol 26 c278W
43. Mr. Teddy Taylor

asked the Secretary of State for Defence if he will make a statement on the naval shipbuilding programme.

Mr. Pattie

The broad outlines of the shipbuilding programme were laid down last year in Cmnd. 8288. This programme is proceeding satisfactorily. In addition, the Government are considering as a matter of urgency the need for replacement of ships lost in the South Atlantic.
