§ Mr. Brian Parkyn
asked the Minister of Technology what was the total annual cost last year of the Royal Aircraft Establishment, Bedford, compared with the annual cost of the Royal Aircraft Establishment, Farnborough.
§ Mr. Fowler
It is not the practice to publish detailed information about the actual costs of individual aviation R. & D. establishments. The total cost of the Royal Aircraft Establishment at Bedford (cash expenditure on running costs and plant) in 1968 was approximately 30 per cent. of that of the Royal Aircraft Establishment at Farnborough.
