Progress on "Mohawk" has inevitably been affected by demarcation and other disputes which have taken place in the shipyard. In assessing delay in completion of the ship it is difficult to say what proportion to ascribe to labour troubles but they have contributed to a probable delay of several months. Vickers Armstrongs have undertaken to make every effort to maintain the current completion date.As far as "Valiant" is concerned the electrical disputes have not affected this ship to the same extent and the firm are currently working to meet their contract completion date.
