§ Lord Hill-Norton
asked Her Majesty's Government:
Whether they will make a Statement on the conclusions of Exercise Brave Defender.
§ The Minister of State for Defence Support (Lord Trefgarne)
The exercise successfully tested plans and procedures for the ground defence of vital installations in this country. I should like, in particular, to pay tribute to the enthusiasm and professionalism of the volunteer and reserve forces who took part. A detailed analysis of Brave Defender is now under way but I have today placed in the Library a report on first impressions of the exercise.
