HC Deb 08 July 2002 vol 388 c713W
Mr. Gray

To ask the Secretary of State for Defence what his deployment plans are for HMS Boxer and HMS Brave. [66761]

Mr. Ingram

HMS Boxer and HMS Brave are currently moored at HM Naval Base, Portsmouth.

The ships have been de-equipped to an unclassified status and all stores have been removed. As part of the disposal process, significant quantities of material have been returned to Ministry of Defence stores to assist with fulfilling fleet shortage requirements.

The platforms are designated for CINCFLEET High Seas Firing (i.e. Hulk Targets) in 2003–05.
