HC Deb 03 April 1974 vol 871 c390W
Mr. Raymond Fletcher

asked the Secretary of State for Defence if, in his current review of defence expenditure, he will give due consideration to the increasing effectiveness of both anti-tank and anti-aircraft missiles demonstrated in the recent Middle Eastern war; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. Mason

We are still in the process of studying the lessons to be learned from the 1973 Middle East war. This is, of course, a complex exercise and will necessarily take some time to complete. The effectiveness of anti-tank and antiaircraft missiles is among the subjects being investigated.
