HL Deb 28 October 1997 vol 582 c238WA
The Earl of Mar and Kellie

asked Her Majesty's Government:

Whether they are considering the use of the shortly to be decommissioned "Canberra" as accommodation for homeless people after being moored in a city.

Baroness Hayman

We have not and are not considering such a use for the "Canberra". We have been advised that the vessel has been sold for scrap and is currently on its way to a breaker's yard in the Indian sub-continent.
