§ Mr. Foulkes
To ask the Secretary of State for Defence how many RAF Tornado F3 squadrons will be assigned to the NATO immediate reaction forces (air) from January 1995; and what proposals he has to increase this number.
§ Mr. Soames
It is not our practice to disclose such details of assigned forces. The annual statement on the defence estimates does, however, describe the assets planned to be assigned against NATO reaction forces generally.
