§ Mr. William Hamilton
asked the Secretary of State for Defence what will be the estimated cost of replacing all existing aircraft of the Queen's Flight; and whether, having regard to the need for reductions in public expenditure, he will suspend all action in this field.
§ Mr. Pattie
The cost of replacing aircraft of the Queen's Flight would, of570W course, depend upon the number and type or types chosen as the replacements. There are no firm plans to replace any of the Queen's Flight aircraft, and I have nothing as yet to add to the reply I gave to my hon. Friend the Member for Thanet, East (Mr. Aitken) on 10 July 1979.—[Vol. 970, c. 123.]
