§ Mr. Andrew F. Bennett
asked the Secretary of State for Defence what is his latest estimate of the date of the initial operational capability for the joint United Kingdom/ United States of America modernisation programme for the United States radar facilities at Fylingdales in Yorkshire.
§ Mr. Stanley
We hope that the modernisation programme for the joint ballistic missile early warning system at RAF Fylingdales will be completed by late 1990 or early 1991. No firm date for initial operating capability has yet been fixed.
