HC Deb 23 February 1959 vol 600 c797
15. Mr. Chetwynd

asked the Minister of Supply if it has yet been decided whether the propelled bomb whose progress is reported in the Defence White Paper, Command Paper No. 662, will have a built-in guidance system.

Mr. Aubrey Jones

The development of propelled stand-off bombs for use with V-bombers is being carried out in industry with assistance from my Department's Research and Development Establishments. These bombs will have built-in guidance systems.

Mr. Chetwynd

Will it be possible to launch them from any point from the aircraft's base to the maximum range, and will they be able to zigzag to avoid interception?

Mr. Jones

Yes, Sir.
