HC Deb 18 May 1981 vol 5 c19W
31. Mr. Bruce-Gardyne

asked the Secretary of State for Industry what scrutiny he has given to the report of the Select Committee on Industry and Trade regarding the continuing costs of Concorde; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. Tebbit

The Select Committee's observations and recommendations, which cover many aspects of Concorde, are being studied in detail; and, in accordance with normal practice, the Government's final and considered reply will be delivered to Parliament as soon as possible. However, I cannot at present anticipate when this will be, or the form or content of the Government's response.
