§ Mr. Roy Mason
asked the Minister of Supply what is the estimated cost of producing the N.A.39 for its naval operational rôle; and what is the estimated added cost of modifications to make it suitable for Royal Air Force requirements.
§ Mr. Aubrey Jones
The cost of producing the N.A.39 for the Royal Navy will be a matter for negotiation between my Department and the manufacturers of the aircraft and its equipment. I cannot disclose current estimates of the price of the aircraft or of any particular set of modifications.
