Lord Shore of Stepney

asked Her Majesty's Government:

In respect of the need of the Armed Forces for a strategic sea-lift capability, why roll-on/roll-off ferries are defined as "non-warlike"; and on whose authority such a classification is based. [HL4550]

Baroness Symons of Vernham Dean

I will write to my noble friend and a copy of my letter will be placed in the Library of the House.
