§ 34. Mr. Favell
asked the Secretary of State for Defence what is his assessment of the relative advantages to the British aviation industry of developing P120 as opposed to the European fighter aircraft.
§ Mr. Butler
Evaluation of possible means of satisfying the need for a replacement for Jaguar and Phantom aircraft is proceeding. It would be premature to comment on the relative merits of the P120 and EFA at this stage.
