§ Mr. Critchley
asked the Secretary of State for Defence what plans he has to get the Royal Marine helicopters to Norway in case of emergency.
§ Mr. Duffy
Movement arrangements for Royal Marines helicopters would depend upon the nature of the emergency, the scale of reinforcement required and the availability of shipping, including HMS "Hermes", "Fearless" and "Intrepid". If circumstances dictated helicopters could deploy under their own power.
