HC Deb 25 January 1982 vol 16 cc231-2W
33. Mr. Michael Marshall

asked the Secretary of State for Industry what is his current assessment of the value to British industry of satellite projects wholly or partly funded by Her Majesty's Government.

Mr. Wakeham

Information on this basis is not maintained centrally. However, I understand from the principal companies in the space industry that orders of some £120 million are current on satellite projects to be part funded, directly or indirectly, or purchased by Her Majesty's Government.
