31. Mr. Cran

To ask the Secretary of State for Defence when he expects work to commence on the conversion of the Royal Navy's fleet of Sea Harrier FRS 1 air defence fighters to FRS 2 standard.

Mr. Sainsbury

Work to update the Sea Harrier began in 1983 at British Aerospace for the aircraft conversion and Ferranti for the Blue Vixen radar. The first FRS 1 aircraft will be delivered to British Aerospace for conversion to FRS 2 standard in 1990.
