Sir Patrick Wall

asked the Secretary of State for Trade and Industry whether he is now prepared to increase the Government's contribution to the A330/A340 projects.

The Government's discussions with British Aerospace about the amount of launch aid for the airbus A330 and A340 projects have reached an advanced stage and it is hoped that an agreement will soon be reached.
