§ 38. Mr. de Freitas
asked the Minister of Supply how many Blue Streak missiles being developed for the Royal Air Force will be used for scientific experiments; and whether these experiments will involve the launching of a space satellite.
§ Mr. Aubrey Jones
While advantage will be taken of the test programme of the Blue Streak weapon to obtain incidental scientific information, there are at present no plans for diverting missiles to scientific experiments. As for earth satellites, I have nothing to add to the Answer which I gave on 16th June to the hon. Member for Barnsley (Mr. Mason).
