HL Deb 22 October 1985 vol 467 c1078WA
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.
