HC Deb 27 May 1976 vol 912 cc342-3W
Mrs. Hayman

asked the Secretary of State for Industry whether, in view of the recommendation by the Organising Committee of British Aerospace that proposals for further development of the HS146 should be supported, he will now authorise Hawker Siddeley Aviation to proceed with the plan it has put to him.

Mr. Les Huckfield

I am urgently examining the Organising Committee's recommendations on Hawker Siddeley Aviation's proposal for further limited Government expenditure on keeping open the option of future launch of this aircraft and intend to announce my decision as soon as possible.
