Alert me about debates like this
asked the Parliamentary Secretary to the Admiralty to what extent atomic anti-submarine weapons have been developed in the Royal Navy.
Research into new antisubmarine weapons covers a broad field, but it would not be in the public interest to disclose details.
Can the hon. Gentleman say whether he or his colleagues have any answer, in their opinion, to the possible menace of the immense Soviet submarine fleet?
That is a very broad question to answer by way of Question and Answer, but I should say that probably one of the most potent weapons to use against a submarine is another submarine, particularly a nuclear submarine.
