asked the Civil Lord of the Admiralty when a new petty officers' block will be constructed in H.M.S. "Terror" in the Naval Base, Singapore.

The building of the additional accommodation required for petty officers is the second stage in the provision of extra accommodation in H.M.S. "Terror". Instructions are being given to consultant architects to proceed with designs. When they are complete we shall, as part of our normal procedure, review the project to see that the need remains and that it cannot be met by the use of any other Service accommodation.

asked the Civil Lord of the Admiralty if he is aware that the cooking equipment of H.M.S. "Terror" in the naval base at Singapore is of so antique a type that no cook in the Royal Navy, other than those in H.M.S. "Terror" who have had specific experience, has sufficient seniority to have had experience of this type; and if he will have it replaced by modern cooking equipment.
