HC Deb 19 May 1975 vol 892 cc243-4W
Mr. Tebbit

asked the Secretary of State for Industry when he last met Rolls-Royce Ltd. to discuss development of the RB211 engine in the Boeing 747 aircraft.

Mr. Benn

I discussed the application of the RB211524 engine to the Boeing 747 aircraft with both management and trade union representatives during my visit to the Derby Engine Division of Rolls-Royce (1971) Ltd on 14th February 1975. The matter is currently under discussion between the company and my Department.
