HC Deb 16 January 1964 vol 687 c61W
Captain Kerby

asked the Minister of Aviation what provision has been made to ensure that the Blue Steel missile, now in service, is backed by adequate industrial potential to see it through its service life.

Mr. Marten

Blue Steel and its main components are the products of major firms in the aircraft industry. The resources of these firms will be available to support the missile throughout its service life and contracts for this purpose have been placed.
