HC Deb 01 February 1965 vol 705 c225W
Mr. Marten

asked the Minister of Aviation what progress is being made with the automatic flight control system for the Concord; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. Roy Jenkins

Responsibility for the automatic flight control system rests on the French side of the project. After discussion between the two sides, and with the agreement of my Department, Sud Aviation have issued instructions to Elliott Automation Ltd., to proceed with this development. One French and one American firm will each undertake a share of the work in association with Elliotts, who will take the lead.
