HC Deb 04 July 1991 vol 194 c211W
Mr. Frank Cook

To ask the Secretary of State for Defence what assessment has been made of the volume of halons released to the atmosphere in the Gulf region during Operation Granby/Desert Storm as a result of the in-flight refuelling of military planes of the armed forces.

Mr. Archie Hamilton

There is no evidence to suggest that any halon gases are released during the air-to-air refuelling of RAF aircraft.
