To ask the Secretary of State for Defence when he last met trade union representatives of Rose Packaging Ltd., Gainsborough, to discuss the Sea Wolf launcher contract.
My noble Friend the Minister of State for Defence Procurement met trade union officials representing employees of Rose Forgrove Ltd. in July 1986. Matters associated with the development of a launcher for lightweight Sea Wolf were discussed.
To ask the Secretary of State for Defence (1) when he next expects to place orders for the lightweight Sea Wolf;(2) which Royal Navy vessels will be fitted with the lightweight Sea Wolf; and how many units will be fitted to each vessel.
I refer the hon. Member to the answer I gave to my hon. Friend the Member for Chelmsford (Mr. Burns) on 10 November at column 157.
