HC Deb 19 November 1987 vol 122 c609W
Mr. Cohen

To ask the Secretary of State for Defence what charge is to be paid by Her Majesty's Government for the use of the NAVSTAR guidance satellite; what are the implications of this for the independence of Trident; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. Ian Stewart

We do not anticipate that any charges will be imposed for the use of NAVSTAR. As Trident will not be dependent in any way on this system, there are no implications for the independence of the United Kingdom Trident force.
