Lord Astor of Hever

asked Her Majesty's Government:

How many aircraft will be procured under the Joint Combat Aircraft project. [HL2596]

Lord Bach

While no final decisions have been taken, our current planning assumption is that we will buy up to 150 short take off and vertical landing variants of the Joint Strike Fighter to meet our Joint Combat Aircraft requirement.
