HC Deb 20 July 1993 vol 229 c165W
21. Mr. Luff

To ask the Secretary of State for Defence how many United Kingdom contractors are involved in the Eurofighter-2000 project; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. Aitken

Although my Department does not hold detailed information on all sub-contracts, we estimate that some 300 British companies are in the EF2000 supply chain. The project currently supports about 9, 000 jobs in the United Kingdom. This figure is expected to rise to some 28, 000 at the peak of the production phase.
