HC Deb 25 July 1969 vol 787 c583W
Mr. Marten

asked the Minister of Technology what proportion of the number of development contracts placed for navigation instruments, in the latest year for which figures are available, provided specific incentives for the contractors to meet the budgeted costs.

Mr. Benn

35 per cent. However, this includes contracts for post-design services which by their nature must be priced on a basis of actual costs. If these are excluded, the figure becomes 65 per cent.
