§ 72. Mr. Cordle
asked the Minister of Aviation if he will take steps to enable the Beagle Aircraft Company to take over the factory and airfield at Christchurch sufficiently soon to ensure continuity of employment for all those at present employed by the de Havilland Aircraft Co. Ltd.
§ Mr. Thorneycroft
I shall ensure that this point is taken fully into account in my Department's negotiations with the Beagle group.
