§ Mr. Hancock
To ask the Secretary of State for Defence if the Royal Navy plans to purchase remanufactured Raytheon Tactile Tomahawk missiles; and if he will make a statement. 
§ Dr. Moonie
The UK has already purchased some remanufactured Raytheon Tomahawk land attack missiles to replace those used during the Kosovo campaign. A further purchase of these missiles is planned and negotiations with the US Government are in progress. Joint UK/US studies have also established the feasibility of a horizontally launched version of the next generation of the missile, Tactical Tomahawk, although no decision on purchase of these missiles has yet been taken.
