HC Deb 07 March 1968 vol 760 cc161-2W
Mr. Dalyell

asked the Secretary of State for Defence what information has been given to the German Government on British designs for a variable geometry aircraft.

Mr. Stonehouse

I have been asked to reply.

We have discussed with German authorities the operational requirements of our two forces, the possibility of meeting these by a joint project and the main technical features of the aircraft systems concerned. The stage has not yet been reached where design material has had to be exchanged.
