§ 28. Mr. Gerald Howarth
To ask the Secretary of State for Defence when he expects to publish his revised "Options for Change" policy statement.
§ Mr. Tom King
As the hon. Member and my hon. Friend will be aware, we are continuing to study the proposals in "Options for Change" which I announced last July. When we are in a position to take decisions on the final size and shape of the armed forces, I shall of course report further to the House.
