HC Deb 26 June 1974 vol 875 cc480-1W
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 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.
