(Question No. 5167)


Mr Jacobi asked the Minister for Defence, upon notice, on 17 March 1987:

(1) Will he bring up to date the information he gave in answers to questions Nos 1926 (Hansard, 19 November 1985, page 3184) and 3161 (Hansard, 10 April 1986, page 2100) concerning Soviet naval activity in the Indian and Pacific Oceans.


Mr Beazley —The answer to the honourable member's question is as follows:

(1) Monthly class/ship days figures of Soviet naval and naval associated ships in the Indian Ocean during the period 1 February 1986 and 28 February 1987 are shown in the following table. For the reasons I noted previously in my answer to question 3161 (Hansard, 10 April 1986, page 2102), I am unable to provide similar comprehensive data on Soviet naval activity in the Pacific Ocean.
