To ask the Secretary of State for Defence if he will list the deployments of Skyguard radar to monitor low-flying exercises in the United Kingdom since October 1989; and if he will make a statement on the number and nature of any breaches of low-flying regulations that were detected.

Since October 1989, the Skyguard system has been deployed to the following areas to monitor low flying:

  • North East England and Borders area (Exercise Mallet Blow)—27 to 29 March 1990.
  • Shepton Mallet area—9 to 13 July 1990.

No breaches of low-flying regulations were substantiated during the March deployment. The results of the July deployment are still awaited.
