Earl Russell

asked Her Majesty's Government:

Whether the decision not to fit all-weather radar on Chinook helicopters was taken on grounds of efficiency.

The Parliamentary Under-Secretary of State, Ministry of Defence (Viscount Cranborne)

RAF Chinook helicopters are not fitted with an all-weather radar as their primary role does not require this equipment.
