HC Deb 08 July 1974 vol 876 c335W
47. Mr. Frank Allaun

asked the Secretary of State for Defence if the United Kingdom is developing a variant of the multi-rôle combat aircraft to meet future air defence requirements; and if this development will mean a substantial addition to the cost estimated for the standard version.

Mr. William Rodgers

Feasibility studies for an air defence variant of the MRCA were started in 1969. Work on project definition began last year, its primary purpose being to provide a sound assessment of costs.
