In my answer of 17 June to the hon. Member for Caernarvon (Mr. Wigley) and my answer of 18 June to my hon. Friend the Member for Northampton, North (Mr. Marlow) I indicated that the total number of those killed on duty with the task force in the South Atlantic was estimated to be 255. The latest information has indicated that the total number is 252.—[Vol. 25, c. 341; 360.]
§ Mr. Robert Atkins
asked the Secretary of State for Defence (1) what decisions have been taken on the possible uses for the Argentine military equipment captured during and after the Falklands conflict; and if he will make a statement;
(2) when he expects to be able to provide details of the quantities and varieties of Argentine military equipment captured during and after the Falklands conflict.
§ Mr. Blaker
Our forces on the Falkland Islands have taken possession of a substantial quantity of Argentine military equipment. Some items are already in use by our forces; others are being checked for safety and serviceability. It is unlikely that a detailed inventory will be available for some time and no final decisions about the future use of the equipment have yet been taken.
§ Lord James Douglas-Hamilton
asked the Secretary of State for Defence whether he will list the numbers and types of Argentine aircraft that are estimated to have been (a) destroyed, (b) probably destroyed and (c) damaged, during recent operations in and around the Falkland Islands, stating the types of weapons by which this was achieved, and giving numbers in each case.23W
§ Mr. Blaker
The following Argentine aircraft are estimated to have been destroyed in operations in and around the Falkland Islands:
26 A4 Skyhawk 24 Mirage III and V 1 Canberra 15 Pucarà 4 Mentor T34 1 Aeromacchi 339 3 Light Aircraft 1 C130 6 Puma 1 Chinook 1 Huey Bell 83 Total
A further eight Skyhawk or Mirage aircraft were reported possibly to have been destroyed. It is not possible to estimate the number of additional Argentine aircraft that were damaged in these operations, but a number are unlikely to have succeeded in returning to their base. Of the 83 aircraft firmly estimated as destroyed, 35 are believed to have been destroyed by air patrols, 20 by sea-launched weapons, 25 by land forces, and three by Argentine forces.
§ Lord James Douglas-Hamilton
asked the Secretary of State for Defence whether either a Harrier or Sea Harrier aircraft was shot down as a result of Argentine fighter interception, during the battle for the Falklands.
