Dr. David Clark

To ask the Secretary of State for Defence how many of his Department's order for attack helicopters will be made in kit form by McDonnell Douglas in America and assembled in Britain. [5529]

Mr. Arbuthnot

Apart from the first eight aircraft which will be manufactured and assembled by McDonnell Douglas, parts of each of the other airframes will be manufactured in kit form by McDonnell Douglas in the US and assembled in Britain. The UK manufactured content of the aircraft will increase as production progresses.
