§ Mr. Warren
asked the Secretary of State for Trade and Industry what dollar offset arrangements are available to the British aerospace industry on further Boeing 747 jumbo jets acquired by British airlines.153W
§ Mr. Onslow
There are no formal offset arrangements. I am however confident that British airlines, like the British Government, welcome the incorporation of British manufactured products in imported aircraft. I suggest that British manufacturers should take every opportunity to demonstrate the quality of their product both to manufacturers and to potential users of imported aircraft.
