§ 56. Sir R. Russell
asked the Minister of Aviation what improvement he expects in 1965 in the exports of British aircraft, engines, and equipment, and in orders for future years.
§ Mr. Stonehouse
The decline in civil aircraft exports will be arrested this year with the start of deliveries of the new generation of British jet transport aircraft. Two VC.10's will be delivered to Ghana. Eight Tridents will be delivered to Pakistan, Iraq and Kuwait; and the BAC 1–11 will begin deliveries against export orders for 67 aircraft. The HS 125 will also begin what we are sure will be a most successful career in the jet executive market, including the U.S.A., where a significant impact has already been made.
