§ 81. Mr. Dalyell
asked the Secretary of State for Defence what discussions he has had with the West Germans for the development of a joint new naval guided weapon, to be tested at Woomera, Australia.
§ Mr. Mason
As reported in the 1967 Statement on Defence Estimates, we had discussions with the West German Government earlier this year on possible collaboration in a new naval short-range surface-to-air guided weapon but the Germans have decided not to pursue the matter, at least for the time being.
