§ Dr. David Clark
To ask the Secretary of State for Defence what assessment he has made of the German Parliament's approval of funding for EF2000. 
§ Mr. Arbuthnot
Bundestage approval of additional funds for the reorientated development phase of the Eurofighter 2000 programme was given on 28 June. This has cleared the way for the four partner nations to sign memorandum of understanding 4 which puts into formal effect the "reorientation" of the project as agreed by Defence Ministers in December 1992.
