HC Deb 20 July 1959 vol 609 cc85-6W
86. Mr. Mason

asked the Minister of Supply how many aircraft orders for the N.A.39 have been placed by his Department to date; and what are his intentions regarding the placing of further orders.

Mr. Aubrey Jones

In addition to the development batch order for twenty aircraft, the necessary orders have been placed to enable production for the Admiralty to begin. I cannot disclose the quantities involved. I have no statement to make at present regarding the placing of any further orders.
