§ Mr. Dalyell
asked the Secretary of State for Defence what plans he has to fill the rôle at present performed by the Canberra aircraft.
§ Mr. Healey:
The Canberra is due to be withdrawn by the end of 1970. Our plans provide for the purchase of F111K aircraft, supplemented by the transfer of V bombers from the strategic nuclear rôle when Polaris enters service.
