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 consideration to the future of the tank, in the light of the experience gained in the recent Middle Eastern war.

Mr. Mason

Yes. But there is no reason so far to doubt that the tank will remain an essential element of an effective defence system.
