HC Deb 11 February 1971 vol 811 cc222-3W
Mr. Jopling

asked the Minister of State for Defence whether he will make a statement on the future of the Red Arrows Demonstration Team.

Mr. Lambton

A Board of Inquiry has been set up to investigate the accident of 20th January. We shall review the future programme for the team in the light of its findings. In the meantime the Red Arrows will be largely engaged in training. The team's resources will not, for the time being, permit more than a limited programme of public display flying.
