§ 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.
