HMS Grimsby

Volume 458: debated on Monday 12 March 2007

To ask the Secretary of State for Defence what he expects the total cost of repairs to HMS Grimsby to be; what her current status is; when he expects her to become operational; and if he will make a statement. (125394)

[holding answer 7 March 2007]: It is not possible to identify separately the repair costs for HMS Grimsby as these have been combined with upkeep costs as part of her Ships Support Period Contract. The combined value, however, of both the repair and upkeep work for the vessel is some £3.7 million. The work is progressing well and HMS Grimsby is on schedule to return to operational service in February 2008.
