HC Deb 10 February 1971 vol 811 c185W
88. Mr. Rankin

asked the Secretary of State for Trade and Industry if he will discuss with British European Airways the acquisition by it of the Sikorsky 5–65–40 aircraft for use in the Scottish Highlands and Islands, and in the provision of feeder services for international air flights.

Mr. Noble

No. I understand Sikorsky are not yet committed to producing this helicopter, and B.E.A. have put no purchasing proposals to me.
