HC Deb 12 July 1983 vol 45 c307W
31. Mr. Gould

asked the Secretary of State for Defence what representations he has received concerning changed priorities in naval ship design, particularly with reference to the new type 23 frigates.

Mr. Ian Stewart

We continue to receive a significant number of representations from hon. Members and from the general public about warship design. During the past year many of these representations have been concerned with fire hazards in ships and with reducing such dangers in new classes such as the type 23.
