HC Deb 15 April 1964 vol 693 c57W
4. Mr. W. Hamilton

asked the Minister of Aviation how many programmes for missiles and aircraft have been terminated in each of the last 12 years.

Mr. Amery

Two research projects requiring the construction of aircraft and their use in a programme of tests and experimental flights have been terminated earlier than was originally intended. These were the Percival Gas Turbine helicopter, work on which ceased in 1956, and the T188 whose flying programme was terminated early this year.
