§ Mr. Critchley
asked the Secretary of State for Defence what plans he has to replace the 120-mm recoilless rifle and the Carl Gustav in the infantry anti-tank role.
§ Mr. William Rodgers
Replacements for both weapons are under consideration. A decision on a medium-range equipment to replace the 120-mm recoilless rifle is likely to be made fairly shortly. The Carl Gustav short-range weapon will remain in service for some time yet.
