§ 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.
