HC Deb 09 February 1973 vol 850 c203W
Mr. S. James A. Hill

asked the Secretary of State for Trade and Industry whether Her Majesty's Government now propose to participate in the next stages of the post-Apollo programme.

Mr. Michael Heseltine

The next stage in the post-Apollo programme is the Phase B2 study into the sortie lab and I have offered the European Space Research Organisation a contribution of £300,000 to this stage. In doing so I have made it clear that the United Kingdom is in no way committed to participating in further stages of the studies or in the subsequent development and construction phases.
