§ Mr. Mason
The hon. Gentleman is quite right: Sea Dart has not yet been ordered by any foreign country, although we hope that at the price which we hope to achieve from the contractors concerned, it will have great export potential. The Type 82 destroyer will be a testing bed for that type of missile.
§ Mr. Powell
How could the Government in the Defence White Paper a year ago talk about "shortly ordering the first of a new, more powerful class of guided missile ship" when they have not decided whether there are to be any more after the first?
