§ 125. Mr. Gammans
asked the Secretary of State for War how many Centurion tanks were sent to Korea, how many have fallen into the hands of the enemy; and if this tank or any of its component parts are still on the secret list.
§ Mr. M. Stewart
It would not be in the public interest to disclose how many Centurion tanks have been sent to Korea. One has been reported abandoned and is presumed to have been captured. Neither the tank itself nor any of its component parts are on the secret list.207W
