§ Lord Kennet
asked Her Majesty's Government:
Which of the defence equipment projects that they have announced, and to which they are committed, are vulnerable to the developments in "information warfare" and "electronic warfare" which the US Department of Defense's Defense Science Board Task Force has recently drawn attention to.
The Ministry of Defence takes into account the potential impact of developments in information warfare and electronic warfare and ensures that, in meeting our equipment requirements, systems are designed with appropriate safeguards. It would not be appropriate to comment on the extent to which particular equipments might be at risk.
