HC Deb 10 January 1989 vol 144 c528W
26. Mr. Bill Walker

To ask the Secretary of State for Defence which motor glider type has been selected to replace the Venture fleet of the Air Cadets.

Mr. Sainsbury

Invitations to tender for the supply of 53 modern GRP motor gliders are to be issued later this month. A decision on the choice of glider is not expected until July 1989, after evaluation of the tenders and flight and engineering systems checks.
