  • Description

    The British Secretary of State for Defence, Lord Carrington, said in London that the new British proposals for a five-power agreement in South East Asia would be adequate for the defence of the area. But he added that it included a commitment to consultation in the event of aggression.

    The interview with the Secretary of State followed a British Government supplementary statement on Defence which included the proposals for South East Asia. Under these proposals Britain would make available five warships, a Battalion group of about 1,500 men together with their ancillary weapons and support equipment, a detachment of Nimrod reconnaissance aircraft and Whirlwind helicopters. The provision of a submarine is also being considered.
