HC Deb 09 March 1966 vol 725 cc530-1W
Mr. Ridley

asked the Secretary of State for Defence, why he has not placed a production order for the P1127 fighter yet.

Mr. Healey

At present the development programme and work on tooling is proceeding as authorised some time ago. My right hon. Friend the Minister of Aviation is negotiating a full development contract and production contracts with the firm.
