HC Deb 15 November 1984 vol 67 c346W
Mr. George

asked the Secretary of State for Defence when he expects the Nimrod airborne early warning to be fully operational; what will be the total cost per plane; and how the figure differs from the original estimate upon signing of contracts.

Mr. Butler

It is neither our policy to reveal the dates on which defence systems become fully operational nor to divulge information which is commercially confidential.
