§ 23. Mr. Hugh Jenkins
asked the Secretary of State for Defence whether he will make a statement on the advanced war-head being designed for the Royal Navy's C4 submarine missiles in the light of the Government's undertaking not to embark on a new generation of nuclear weapons.
§ Mr. Mulley
The Royal Navy does not operate the C4 missile. The question of developing a new warhead for it does not, therefore, arise.
25. Mr. Alan Lee Williams

§ 27. Mr. Tebbit
asked the Secretary of State for Defence if he has consulted the French Government concerning the possibility of joint procurement of an air-launched Cruise missile.
