HC Deb 15 July 1985 vol 83 c43W
Mr. Strang

asked the Secretary of State for Defence what is the intended operational function for the three new submarine berths to be built at Portsmouth.

Mr. Lee

There are no submarine berths at the Portsmouth naval base nor are there plans to build any. There is a main jetty at Gosport which currently provides berths for three 'O' class submarines. The berths are to be dredged to enable them to accommodate the new Upholder class of submarines.
