§ Mr. Hector Hughes
asked the Minister of Technology if he will now make a detailed statement on the nature and cause of the faults in the "Queen Elizabeth 2", on the steps being taken to cure them and by whom they are to be taken.
§ Mr. Benn
In a Written Answer on 3rd March I gave the full text of the letter Sir Arnold Lindley sent to me about his investigations into the faults in the turbines for the "Queen Elizabeth 2" and the measures being taken by the turbine manufacturer to rectify them. I am glad that the companies concerned were able to accept his assessment.—[Vol. 779, c.42–5.]
