HC Deb 23 October 1972 vol 843 c178W
Mr. Bishop

asked the Secretary of State for Trade and Industry what plans he now has for British participation in Space Shuttle; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. Onslow

Discussions on future space programmes, including the possibility of European participation in the post-Apollo programme, are in progress with our European partners. A decision on British participation must await the outcome of these discussions.
