HC Deb 16 January 1997 vol 288 c312W
Dr. David Clark

To ask the Secretary of State for Defence what assessment he has made of the use of lasers to develop a British anti-ballistic missile capability. [11223]

Mr. Arbuthnot

In our work to evaluate the options for active ballistic missile defence systems, we have studied a number of land, air and sea-based systems which, individually or combined, might provide a BMD capability. These included systems, at various stages of research and development, which employ laser technology.
