HC Deb 22 November 1948 vol 458 cc841-2
5. Commander Noble

asked the Minister of Supply what expenditure has been incurred on the development of turbine engines for aircraft since 1st January, 1941; and what types of turbine engines are now in production as a result.

Mr. G. R. Strauss

I regret that it would not be in the public interest to give the amount spent on the development of gas turbine engines. The engines at present in production are, in the turbo-jet class, the Derwent V, Nene II, Goblin II and Ghost I; and, in the propeller turbine class, the Python I.
