HC Deb 23 February 1998 vol 307 c39W
Mr. Hancock

To ask the Secretary of State for Defence what measures were taken to verify claims made by the Tomahawk land attack missiles manufacturers and the United States Department of Defense about its accuracy before procuring the missile. [30170]

Mr. Spellar

The US Department of Defense has provided detailed information on the results of Tomahawk operations and missile test firings. This information was assessed fully before a decision was taken to procure the weapon system. Manufacturers' claims did not influence the decision.
