HC Deb 30 June 1966 vol 730 c326W
Mr. Marten

asked the Secretary of State for Defence if he will give individual details of the three additional defence attaches to the British Embassy in Saigon; how long they have been there; how frequently they are out in the field observing military actions; and whether he will increase their numbers.

Mr. Healey

The attaches are a Naval Commander, an Army Lieutenant-Colonel and a Royal Air Force Wing-Commander; they have been there since February this year; as with service attaches elsewhere they are required sometimes to travel outside the capital, Saigon, but not for the purpose of observing units in action; no increase in numbers is contemplated.
