HC Deb 22 October 1969 vol 788 c279W
Mr. Roebuck

asked the Minister of Technology whether he will make a statement about the assistance his Department gave to Rolls-Royce Limited in securing the contract for the RB211 engine from the United States of America.

Mr. Benn

As a supplement to the statement I made in the House on 1st April, 1968, I can add that the launching aid granted for this very promising project is subject to a maximum of just over £47 million.
