§ 20. Mr. Tomney
asked the Minister of Supply if he will give an indication of the likely performance of the Seacat surface-to-air missile, now ordered for the Royal Navy, particularly against low-flying aircraft.
§ Mr. Aubrey Jones
Seacat will provide a very efficient close-range defence for ships, down to wave-top level. It will be much more lethal than the short-range anti-aircraft gun, which it will displace.
