HC Deb 07 March 1951 vol 485 c413
9. Mr. Langford-Holt

asked the Parliamentary Secretary to the Admiralty how many major changes have been made to the specification for the GR17/44 aircraft since the first staff requirement was issued; and on what date this requirement was issued.

Mr. Callaghan

Two, Sir. The requirement was issued in December, 1945.

Mr. Langford-Holt

Could the hon. Member assure me that there has been, and there is now, no intention of altering the seating capacity of this aircraft from two to three, which will radically alter it?

Mr. Callaghan

That is one of the two major alterations that has been effected. The number of seats has already been altered from two to three.
