HC Deb 16 April 1981 vol 3 cc227-8W
Mr. John Grant

asked the Secretary of State for Defence if he will seek to ensure that British advanced technology and employment is assisted by the procurement of radar system AR320 from those companies in the United Kingdom which have tendered for this UK-NATO replacement programme.

Mr. Speed

The AR320 equipment is one of the systems currently being examined under NATO international competitive bidding procedures in connection with the provision of three air defence radars. I cannot comment on the likely outcome at this stage.
