HC Deb 12 December 1983 vol 50 c320W
Mr. Dalyell

asked the Secretary of State for the Environment whether the Royal Navy ship Beacon Grange has now been chartered to supply goods to the Falkland Islands.

Sir George Young

The Beacon Grange was used in October 1983 by Cenargo Ltd., the shipping firm employed by the Laing-Mowlem-Amey Roadstone Construction joint venture, for a voyage to transport plant, equipment and materials required for the construction of the Mount Pleasant airfield. It is not a Royal Navy ship.
