HC Deb 26 October 1972 vol 843 c358W
13. Mr. Warren

asked the Minister of State for Defence what representations he has received from the West German Government as to the numbers of multi-rôle combat aircraft they intend to cancel from their existing order.

Lord Lambton

It will be some time before production orders are placed for multi-rôle combat aircraft. Any proposed changes in the planned requirements of the three countries would be a matter for consideration during the next review of the programme.

14. Mr. Goodhart

asked the Minister of State for Defence whether he will make a statement on progress with the multi-rôle combat aircraft programme.

Lord Lambton

Progress has continued to be satisfactory. We are approaching the next review point at which overall progress will be examined by the three countries, and an announcement will be made of the results.
