§ Sir G. de Freitas
asked the Secretary of State for Industry what is now the future of the British hovertrain; and whether he will make a statement.
§ Mr. Benn
No final decision has yet been taken on the tracked hovertrain project as a whole, but research and 481W development on particular aspects is continuing. The Government hope to make a statement in the form of a reply to the report of the Select Committee on Science and Technology during this Session.
