§ Mr. McNamara
asked the Secretary of State for Defence what plans he has for a replacement 155mm self-propelled howitzer.
§ Mr. Archie Hamilton
Further to my statement to the House on 13 January at column 230, a request for quotations has been issued to three United Kingdom and one United States firms to seek a replacement for the 105mm Abbot gun. National armament directors will continue to explore the possibilities of continued collaboration for requirements in the longer term.
