HC Deb 10 February 1988 vol 127 c257W
55. Mr. Atkinson

To ask the Chancellor of the Duchy of Lancaster if he has received any further proposals from British Aerospace and Rolls-Royce on HOTOL.

Mr. Kenneth Clarke

I have recently received a proposal from Rolls-Royce for a further year's work on the HOTOL propulsion concept. I expect to receive a related proposal from British Aerospace shortly and I will consider them both with care.
