HC Deb 29 June 1982 vol 26 cc273-4W
15. Mr. Foulkes

asked the Secretary of State for Defence what reappraisal of equipment procurement he has undertaken following the Falkland Islands conflict.

Mr. Pattie

The process of evaluating the lessons to be learned from the Falklands operation is already well under way but it would be premature for me to make a statement on this subject until we have had an opportunity to examine fully all aspects of the crisis. We shall then be in a position to take reasoned and considered decisions on what adjustments need to be made to the defence programme.
