§ 3. Mr. J. Harvey
asked the Minister of Supply what public money has been spent on the new Hawker super-jet fighter on which work has recently been stopped.
§ Mr. Maudling
Reports in the Press that work has recently been stopped on a Hawker fighter are incorrect. Hawkers have been developing a fighter aircraft of advanced design as a private venture, and I understand that work on this project is continuing. No public money has been spent on it.
