HC Deb 11 February 1991 vol 185 c326W
Mr. Sayeed

To ask the Secretary of State for Defence when he proposes to pay off(a) HMS Onyx and (b) HMS Brereton; when he announced each such decision; what further vessels he intends to announce the decommissioning of in the current financial year; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. Archie Hamilton

HMS Onyx was decommissioned in December 1990. HMS Brereton is to be decommissioned in April 1991. It is not our normal practice to announce formally the decommissioning of individual vessels. Other ships which are to be decommissioned in the current financial year are HMS Penelope, HMS Hubberston, HMS Cuxton, HMS Cormorant and HMS Hart.

Forward to
