HC Deb 01 February 1967 vol 740 c97W
4. Mr. Wall

asked the Minister of Aviation what was the total value of British civilian and military aircraft, respectively, exported in each of the past six financial years; and what proposals he has for increasing these figures in the next three years.

Mr. Stonehouse

The Answer to the first part of this Question is given below.

I am glad to say that the total value of exports achieved by the aircraft industry last year was over £200 million, the highest ever and I hope this year will show an even better result.

This best performance of all time is mainly to the credit of the industry and its salesmen but my Ministry has provided a great deal of assistance. This help will continue to be provided.

The information requested is as follows:

Military Civil
£m. £m.
1961 3.9 32.5
1962 4.0 16.2
1963 12.5 12.7
1964 8.7 11.2
1965 14.6 38.4
1966 19.8 78.3

These figures relates to calendar years (figures for financial years are not readily available), and do not include aircraft parts. The value of aeroengines installed in the exported aircraft is included.
