HC Deb 01 December 1969 vol 792 c187W
53. Mr. Michael McNair-Wilson

asked the Minister of Technology what decision he has reached about Government financial support for an alternative Rolls Royce power plant for the A300B European airbus.

Mr. Benn

Rolls Royce have not yet approached me with a formal request for financial support for the version of the RB211 which they have offered for the A300B. I have however discussed the situation in depth with the firm.
