HC Deb 19 October 1995 vol 264 c357W
Dr. David Clark

To ask the Secretary of State for Defence if he will make a statement of the results of his Department's study into the replacement of the Tornado F3 aircraft by the US F16 aircraft. [37723]

Mr. Arbuthnot

No such study has been undertaken. We are considering a proposal to upgrade the Tornado F3's weapon systems and, as a routine part of our evaluation process, the comparative costs of other options are being looked at.
