asked the Secretary of State for Trade and Industry what consideration he has given to the proposed partnership between Boeing and the British Aircraft Corporation for the production of a new short-range take-off airliner, including giving Government backing to such a project; and whether it is proposed that British participation would include the Rolls-Royce RB 211 engine.

Mr. Michael Heseltine

No proposal has been put to me.
