To ask the Secretary of State for Defence what plans he has to upgrade submarines, in addition to HMS Splendid, to carry Tomahawk missiles. [91153]

Mr. George Robertson

HMS Triumph will be upgraded to carry Tomahawk land attack missiles in autumn 1999, followed by HMS Trafalgar and HMS Spartan next year. Longer term plans are that the full fleet of 10 nuclear powered submarines will be upgraded to carry TLAM by 2008.
