HC Deb 18 March 1975 vol 888 cc374-5W
Mr. Pattie

asked the Secretary of State for Industry if he is satisfied that the 747 jumbo and the long-range Lockheed Tri-Star are directly competitive.

Mr. Meacher:

The Boeing 747 is a substantially larger aircraft. However, for some airlines the purchase of one of these aircraft would probably affect the requirement for the other.
