HC Deb 23 December 1964 vol 704 c304W
77. Mr. Arthur Lewis

asked the Minister of Aviation whether he will state the terms which the Government proposed to Messrs. Ferranti Limited for the settlement of the £42½ million debt owing by this company to Her Majesty's Government; and on what grounds the firm of Ferranti refused to accept these terms.

Mr. Roy Jenkins

I have nothing at present to add to the reply I gave to the hon. Member and the hon. Member for Middlesbrough, West (Dr. Bray) on 16th December.
