HC Deb 17 May 1976 vol 911 c359W
33. Mrs. Hayman

asked the Secretary of State for Industry if he will now announce his response to the proposal for further work on the HS146 put to him by Hawker Siddeley Aviation Limited.

Mr. Kaufman

I have asked the Organising Committee for British Aerospace to consider these proposals against the background of the need to keep this option open and budgetary constraints. Work of course continues on the existing contract placed by the Government.
