HC Deb 11 March 1986 vol 93 c422W
33. Mr. Bellingham

asked the Secretary of State for Defence if, following the American shuttle accident, there will be any delay in the launch of the British payload specialist.

Mr. Norman Lamont

The planned launches of two Skynet 4 communications satellites, which are due to be assisted by British payload specialists, will be delayed as a result of the shuttle accident, but the extent of the delays has yet to be finally determined.
