§ Mr. Corfield
asked the Minister of Technology, if he will give a progress report on the talks between Her Majesty's Government and the First Deputy Prime Minister of Roumania in regard to the possibilities of a Roumanian purchase of British Aircraft Corporation 1–11 aircraft.
§ Mr. Stonehouse
A number of Ministers including my right hon. Friend and myself had very useful discussions on this and other questions of mutual interest during the visit of the Roumanian First Deputy Prime Minister from 23rd January to 3rd February. Negotiations on the possibilities of a Roumanian purchase of BAC 1–11 aircraft are continuing in Bucharest between the Roumanian authorities and representatives of the British Aircraft Corporation.
