HC Deb 16 November 1982 vol 32 cc151-2W
27. Mr. Sheerman

asked the Secretary of State for Defence what steps he has taken to reduce risks of flammability in Her Majesty's ships.

Mr. Pattie

Recent measures include the introduction of a new range of fire-resistant cabling and the replacement of foam mattresses with interior sprung mattresses. A number of other steps are under consideration in the light of experience in the Falklands campaign.
