HC Deb 26 April 1988 vol 132 cc144-5W
27. Mr. Duffy

To ask the Secretary of State for Defence if he is satisfied with progress on the Trigat programme in view of recent developments in armour capability.

Mr. Younger

Yes, I am pleased to announce that I have now signed the memorandum of understanding indicating formally United Kingdom participation with France and Germany in the collaborative full development of both medium and long range Trigat weapons. Contracts with industry for this development work are currently being finalised. Trigat will be developed to meet the threat in the mid-1990s and beyond.
