HC Deb 15 February 1965 vol 706 c160W
Mr. McMaster

asked the Secretary of State for Defence what requirements he has formulated for the development of more advanced ground-to-air missiles to be manufactured in the United Kingdom to meet the needs of the Armed services for the next 10 years.

Mr. Healey

The second generation of surface-to-air guided weapons now becoming operational—i.e. Bloodhound 2, Seaslug 2 and Thunderbird 2—are expected to be in service well into the 1970s. In addition a requirement has been formulated for an advanced, low-level ground-to-air guided missile, development of which is in progress. Other possible requirements are being examined
