HC Deb 20 July 1970 vol 804 c23W
Mr. Laurance Reed

asked the Minister of State for Defence what study his Department has made of the strategic effect on United Kingdom defence policy of missiles emplaced on the Mid-Oceanic Ridge system.

Lord Balniel

We are not aware of any plans for such deployments but strategically the problems posed by them would be of the same order as those posed by other missiles of comparable characteristics.
