HC Deb 18 January 1991 vol 183 c628W
Sir Geoffrey Johnson Smith

To ask the Secretary of State for Defence what is the total value of the orders placed with British firms under the Boeing AWACS offset arrangements.

Mr. Alan Clark

Boeing has to date submitted seven progress reports listing contracts placed with United Kingdom companies to the value of $1,586 million, of which we have so far agreed that $1,149 million should count for offset—now referred to as industrial participation—credit purposes.
