HC Deb 16 November 1987 vol 122 c457W
Mr. O'Neill

To ask the Secretary of State for Defence how many Sea Dart missiles have failed in test firings since 1982.

Mr. Sainsbury

For reasons of security, it is not our practice to disclose details of firing results. However, there is no cause for concern about Sea Dart missile performance during practice firings as this is meeting the naval staff requirement.
