HC Deb 30 November 1972 vol 847 c187W
Mr. Wilkinson

asked the Minister of State for Defence whether he will make a statement on the exercise evaluation during the summer of 1972 of the potential of the helicopter in the land battle.

Mr. Blaker

I believe my hon. Friend has in mind Exercise Sky Warrior, which took place last summer near Otterburn. It was designed to test the tactical use of helicopters in North-West Europe. Evaluation of the results is not yet complete.
