HC Deb 05 May 1987 vol 115 c361W
46. Mr. Nicholas Brown

asked the Secretary of State for Defence when he plans to order the next auxiliary oiler replenishment vessel.

Mr. Archie Hamilton

If the terms stated by my right hon. Friend on 24 April 1986 at column 434 are met, I expect an order to be placed in the autumn with fabrication starting next year.
