HC Deb 28 July 1954 vol 531 c70W
119. Air Commodore Harvey

asked the Minister of Transport and Civil Aviation the total cost of aircraft recently ordered for British Overseas Airways Corporation; and what proportion of this cost represents dollar expenditure.

Mr. Lennox-Boyd

It would be contrary to normal practice to disclose the purchase price of aircraft. The negotiations are not yet concluded, but about 70 per cent. of the expenditure will be in dollars.
