HC Deb 31 January 1969 vol 776 c399W
Mr. Corfield

asked the Minister of Technology what was the total Government financial support of the RB207 engine up to the date on which the aircraft for which it was intended was withdrawn by the European Airbus Consortium.

Mr. J. P. W. Mallalieu

Payments to Rolls Royce up to the end of 1968 in respect of the development of the RB207 for the A300 European Airbus amounted to about £1½million. A final settlement is being negotiated with the company.
