HC Deb 21 July 1958 vol 592 cc10-1W
61. Mr. Mason

asked the Minister of Defence if he will give an assurance that production models of the N.A.39 strike bomber will be placed by the Admiralty even if there are no supporting orders from the Royal Air Force or overseas buyers.

Mr. Sandys

The development of this aircraft is proceeding most satisfactorily; but the stage has not yet been reached at which decisions about production orders have to be taken.
