HC Deb 19 May 1981 vol 5 cc73-4W
Sir Timothy Kitson

asked the Secretary of State for Defence when it is expected that the contract will be signed for the recently negotiated sale of aeroplanes to Abu Dhabi.

Mr. Pattie

Negotiations are continuing over the specific aircraft configuration and the numbers of aircraft required. We would expect a contract to be concluded once these aspects have been resolved to the customer's satisfaction.
