Editorial comments:

The crucial word unfortunately is hard to glean. Perhaps 'itemised' comes closest, but makes less sense. The implication, however, would seem clear enough: the Prime Minister was taking a close interest in the topic of threats to the Falklands. hence her request to John Nott for information as to how long it would take to deploy naval vessels to the Falklands.
