§ Mr. Shersby
asked the Secretary of State for Trade what support his Department has given to the effort now being made by British Aerospace to secure an export order for the BAC111 aircraft from Japan; and if he will make a statement.
§ Mr. Clinton Davis
We have taken every opportunity to make our interest known in Japan and have been working closely with British Aerospace and the British Embassy in Tokyo to support the company's effort. My hon. Friend the Under-Secretary of State gave the latest news of the Japanese airline's attitude on 13th March.
