HC Deb 23 November 1981 vol 13 c311W
Lord James Douglas-Hamilton

asked the Secretary of State for Defence if the Royal Air Force has any future plans for combat aircraft to replace the Jaguar and the Harrier.

Mr. Pattie

I have nothing to add to paragraphs 19 and 20 of Cmnd. 8288 published last June except that, as has already been announced, Her Majesty's Government and the United States Government subsequently concluded a memorandum of understanding regarding collaboration on Harrier AV8B development, production and support.
