HC Deb 03 July 1978 vol 953 cc1-2W
19. Mr. Tebbit

asked the Secretary of State for Industry if he has received any further requests for support for new civil aircraft projects since that from British Aerospace concerning the HS146.

Mr. Les Huckfield

The proposal by British Aerospace regarding the HS146 is a request for approval of the project, not financial support. My right hon. Friend has received no proposals relating to other new civil aircraft projects.

Mr. Rose

asked the Secretary of State for Industry, whether he will now announce the future of the HS 146 project; and, in particular, whether he contemplates international co-operation in aspects of production.

Mr. Les Huckfield

I refer my hon. Friend to my right hon. Friend's comments during the debate on Community documents on the aeronautical sector on 28th June—[Vol. 952, c. 1463.]
