§ 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.
