HC Deb 16 February 1987 vol 110 c490W
Mr. McNamara

asked the Secretary of State for Defence (1) what delays there have been with the air-launched anti-radiation missile; (2) when he expects the air-launched anti-radiation missile to enter Royal Air Force service.

Mr. Archie Hamilton

There have been delays as a result of the difficulties experienced with the rocket motor in the development stage of the project. The Department is studying with the prime contractor, British Aerospace, the implications for the programme.
