§ 28. Mr. Mather
asked the Minister of Technology what percentage of aerospace industry exports in 1969 were projects initiated during the period 1965 to 1969.
§ Mr. David Price
It is impracticable to analyse from the Overseas Trade Accounts that percentage of aerospace industry exports in 1969 which resulted from projects initiated during the period 1965 to 1969. Broadly speaking, however, the length of time required for aerospace development projects to reach production is such that the percentage must be small.
§ Mr. Mather
Is my hon. Friend aware that what he has said represents a very small percentage? Can he say when the remainder of the projects were initiated?
