§ 37. Mr. Barry Jones
To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs what discussions he has had with his counterparts in Bonn and Paris concerning the collaboration of the United Kingdom, Germany and France on the future large aircraft project; and if he will make a statement. 
§ Sir Nicholas Bonsor
My right hon. and learned Friend the Foreign Secretary has not had discussions on this project. However, other Ministers and officials are in regular discussion with the partner nations in the future large aircraft project to establish whether the conditions set out by the Government last December for the United Kingdom to rejoin the programme can be met.
