HC Deb 15 April 1986 vol 95 c377W
41. Mr. Wilkinson

asked the Secretary of State for Defence what progress has been made towards concerting operational requirements between the British and Italian Army staffs for a common dedicated anti-tank helicopter.

Mr. Norman Lamont

Discussions between the British and Italian defence staffs have established that their respective requirements for a light anti-tank helicopter to enter service in the 1990s could be met by a common design.
