HC Deb 01 February 1956 vol 548 c120W
93. Mr. Woodburn

asked the Minister of Supply what project he has, under the sponsorship of his Department, for an aeroplane to provide a non-stop high speed service across the Atlantic; and how soon he expects it to be available.

Mr. Erroll

The long-range Britannia. It will be at least as fast as any other aircraft capable of regular non-stop service between London and New York when it comes into operation, which I expect will be during 1957.
