Peter Luff: The only aircraft capable of deploying sonobuoys (sonar buoys) is the Royal Navy's Merlin HM Mkl helicopter. There are currently 26 Merlin HM Mkl in the forward fleet.

Oral Answers to Questions — Trade and Industry: Law of Contempt (22 May 1972)

Mr Peter Rawlinson: I will readily receive any representations which are made to the effect that there is such concern in Fleet Street on this matter. It is important that the law generally should be got right, and the Lord Justice Phillimore's Committee has a great deal to do; the law is complex, and its deliberations will cover all the different courts. I shall, however, consider any representations which are...

Oral Answers to Questions — Agriculture, Fisheries and Food: Inshore Waters (Fishing Vessels) (8 Jul 1982)

Mr Peter Walker: I am sorry that my original answer did not fit in with the hon. Gentleman's supplementary question. It showed that since 1970 there has been an increase of about 1,600 vessels in the inshore fleet. We are aware of the decline that took place in the long-distance fleet and of the period in which that took place. The hon. Gentleman may complain about my aid, but it is double that given by the...

Scottish Parliament: Fisheries Negotiations (19 Nov 2019)

Mike Rumbles: thing is sure: the December negotiations will affect us whether we are in or out of the European Union, because even if we leave, we have the transition period that runs to the end of 2020. As Peter Chapman pointed out, 60 per cent of the fish that are currently caught in the UK’s exclusive economic zone are not caught by the UK fleet, while, according to the briefing from the...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Oral Answers to Questions — Regional Development: Northern Ireland Bus Fleet (10 Dec 2001)

Peter Robinson: I rather threw out the figures, so it was probably hard for the House to assimilate them quickly. There were 1,106 buses in total that were five years or older. That represents 76% of the fleet. However, there are 838 vehicles that are ten years or older, and that represents 57% of the fleet.

Oral Answers to Questions — Defence: White Paper (22 Mar 1977)

Mr Peter Blaker: Is the Secretary of State aware that Admiral of the Fleet Sir Peter Hill-Norton, Chairman of the NATO Military Committee, recently said that it was extraordinary how some of our political leaders view the military buildup of the Warsaw Pact as being only for defensive purposes, and added that Warsaw Pact forces are not the right shape for that purpose.

The decision to retire the Harrier force early was not taken lightly. Fleet...

Public Bill Committee: Fisheries Bill: Examination of Witness (4 Dec 2018)

Peter Aldous: My question is a variation on the Opposition spokesman’s point. It is commonly recognised that the inshore fleet—the under-10s—has had a raw deal as far as access to quota and fishing opportunities is concerned. The Bill is largely based on the assumption that an increase in opportunities, as a result of taking back control of our waters, will give us an uplift that will provide...
