HC Deb 06 April 1984 vol 57 c699W
Mr. Deakins

asked the Secretary of State for Defence if military personnel in charge of the firing mechanisms on cruise missiles undergo any initial psychological tests; and if any subsequent checks are made from time to time to assess their continuing psychological fitness to carry out the responsibility assigned to them.

Mr. Stanley

I understand that US service men engaged in sensitive areas are subject to stringent and regular screening and that this includes psychological tests.
