Hms Polar Circle

EDM number 509 in 1991-92, proposed by Michael Shersby on 20/01/1992.

That this House congratulates Her Majesty's Government on its foresight in chartering the new red ship HMS 'Polar Circle' for deployment in the South Atlantic; wishes Captain Turner and his crew every success in their hydrographic survey work around the Antarctic Peninsula; believes that the ship will also play a valuable role in the projection of British sovereignty in representing the country's national interests and in supporting national operations in the area; and considers that the vessel should be purchased at the unrepeatable price of ú25 million, thus ensuring the long-term presence of the Royal Navy in the seas around the Falkland Islands, South Georgia, the South Sandwich Islands and the British Antarctic Territory for the foreseeable future.

This motion has been signed by a total of 59 MPs.
