HC Deb 29 November 1966 vol 737 c74W
Captain Kerby

asked the Secretary of State for Defence if he plans to maintain British forces in the Caribbean area at their present strength in the foreseeable future; and if he will order increases in naval forces there, in view of recent incidents.

Mr. Healey

I do not think that there is any justification at present for increasing our naval forces in the Caribbean but future deployments will depend upon the circumstances.
