HC Deb 01 December 1969 vol 792 c185W
46. Mr. Wall

asked the Minister of Technology if he will make a statement about the Anglo-French helicopter programme.

Mr. Benn

The Anglo-French helicopter programme is making good progress. The SA.330 is in production and deliveries to the French Army and for export have already taken place. Last week we and the French Government agreed to start production of the SA.341 and to complete development of the WG.13 up to the launching of production in 1972. The association between the firms concerned on both sides of the Channel shows considerable promise.
