HC Deb 22 November 1950 vol 481 c43W
6. Mr. H. Price

asked the Secretary of State for Air what other land-based antisubmarine aircraft has been ordered to replace the obsolescent Shackleton.

Mr. A. Henderson

None. The Shackleton is not obsolescent. It will be able to fly further and faster than current general reconnaissance types and it will be equipped with the most up-to-date anti-submarine equipment, including the latest types of weapons.
