HC Deb 21 April 1958 vol 586 c607
31. Mr. de Freitas

asked the Minister of Supply how many and which transport aircraft are on order for the Royal Air Force.

Mr. Aubrey Jones

20 Britannias and 46 Beverleys.

Mr. de Freitas

Has the Minister no information as to what is to be the successor to the Beverley aircraft?

Mr. Jones

There is a further Question on the Paper on that question.

Sir A. V. Harvey

Is my right hon. Friend saying there is no small transport aircraft being built or designed for the Royal Air Force to replace the Viking and other types in use?

Mr. Jones

That is quite a different question. The question I was answering was what orders have been entered into. I have no requirement for the aircraft mentioned.
