HC Deb 29 June 1982 vol 26 cc278-9W
44. Mr. Farr

asked the Secretary of State for Defence what new studies he has initiated into the fire risks for modern naval vessels arising from the conflict in the South Atlantic.

Mr. Pattie

The MOD continuously investigates developments in fire fighting and fire prevention techniques. In addition we shall of course be studying very carefully the causes of our tragic losses in the South Atlantic to see whether any lessons may be learnt for our damage control and maritime safety techniques generally.
