HC Deb 15 April 1964 vol 693 c58W
12. Mr. McMaster

asked the Minister of Aviation what consideration he is giving to proposals from Short Brothers and Harland to develop a jet version of the Belfast freighter aircraft.

Mr. Amery

My Department has had discussions with the company about its tentative plans for developing a jet version of tire Belfast. We are considering what are the prospects of any military or civil requirement for an aircraft of this kind.
