HC Deb 25 February 1971 vol 812 cc226-7W
71. Mr. George Thomson

asked the Minister of State for Defence why no mention is made in the Defence White Paper, Command Paper No. 4592, of the Government's decision regarding the provision of a fifth Polaris submarine.

Lord Balniel

Because no decision has been taken. The option to build a fifth Polaris submarine remains under review.
