HC Deb 16 April 1969 vol 781 c246W
35. Mr. Hordern

asked the Minister of Technology if he will make a statement on the total costs of research and development of the Concorde project to the latest convenient date.

Mr. Benn

Extramural expenditure by B.A.C., Rolls Royce and their subcontractors to date totals about £170 million, to which may be added £17½ million for intramural expenditure at Ministry of Technology Establishments. Expenditure in France, both extramural and intramural, is on a broadly similar scale.
