HC Deb 06 February 1987 vol 109 c877W
Mr. Gordon Brown

asked the Secretary of State for Defence if he will publish the results of the COMPE study on the royal dockyards and private shipyards.

Mr. Archie Hamilton

Yes. As I said in this week's Navy debate at column 778, it will be at least another year before final results are analysed, but some comparison of th frigate refits should be available shortly.
