HC Deb 01 December 1964 vol 703 c59W
Mr. Malcolm MacMillan

asked the Secretary of State for Defence (1) what has been the estimated average cost of each launching of a Corporal missile at the South Uist rocket range;

(2) how he intends to arrange for disposal of stocks of the now obsolete Corporal missiles;

(3) what was the total cost of the Corporal missiles acquired for the British Army.

Mr. Mulley

It is not practicable to give a meaningful estimate of the cost of launching a missile as this operation is inseparable from the cost of training troops in handling and firing techniques. Corporal missiles are still deployed operationally by the British Army and the question of disposal does not at present arise. The Corporal system was supplied free by the United States Government.
