HC Deb 01 March 1978 vol 945 cc286-7W
Mr. Steen

asked the Secretary of State for Defence what offset purchases of United Kingdom defence equipment have been agreed in association with the purchase of Boeing Chinook helicopters to the value of £100 million from the United States of America.

Dr. Gilbert

The initial contract placed with Boeing-Vertol provides for the United Kingdom to receive offset orders in the United Kingdom over the next 10 years equivalent to not less than 30 per cent. of the contract value.
