asked Her Majesty's Government:Whether they can confirm that ADA will replace CORAL 66 as the standard computer language for British Defence Systems from 1st July 1987, and if so whether it will at that time become the standard NATO language, and if not why not, and which countries will it be used by.

I can confirm that ADA will replace CORAL 66 as the single preferred language for the implementation of defence real-time operational systems from 1st July 1987. ADA is already the approved single high order programming language for the NATO Command and Control Information Systems funded wholly or in part by the national members of the integrated military structure, and is to be used for NATO systems in accordance with the guidelines issued by the NATO Command, Control and Information Systems and Automatic Data Processing Committee.
