HC Deb 06 February 1973 vol 850 cc73-4W
Mr. Judd

asked the Minister of State for Defence whether he will make a statement on the Government's plans to introduce motor torpedo boat-style fast missile vessels into the British Fleet.

Mr. Buck

If the hon. Member has in mind fast patrol boats capable of deploying a surface-to-surface missile, we have no present plans for introducing vessels of this type into the Royal Navy but are keeping requirements under review.
