HC Deb 06 December 1967 vol 755 c314W
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.
