HC Deb 26 January 1979 vol 961 c267W
Mr. Churchill

asked the Secretary of State for Defence what progress Her Majesty's Government have made in their investigation of a long-range tactical attack or cruise missile and its possible application for United Kingdom defence; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. Mulley

We are undertaking limited studies of cruise missile technology to enable us to take an informed part in NATO discussions. There are, however, no plans to introduce cruise missiles into the forces of the United Kingdom.
