HC Deb 17 January 1968 vol 756 cc612-3W
Mr. Elystan Morgan

asked the Minister of Technology if he will name the Anglo-French aircraft projects in the past 10 years which have been negotiated on the basis of binding legal obligations upon the parties thereto.

Mr. Benn:

All the Anglo-French aircraft projects which have been entered into over the last 10 years—that is to say the Concorde, Jaguar, Variable Geometry aircraft, and the three military helicopters—have been on the basis of arrangements which define the obligations falling upon both parties. The same applies to the Airbus, which is a joint Anglo-French-German project.
