§ 51. Mr. Rankin
asked the Minister of Transport and Civil Aviation what reason prevents the Prestwick Pioneer getting a certificate of airworthiness.
§ Mr. Watkinson
None, Sir. The single-engined Prestwick Pioneer has had a certificate of airworthiness since July, 1955. The twin-engined version was granted one on 16th November last. I am sorry that I was not aware, at the moment of replying to the hon. Member on this point in debate on 19th November, that the certificate had actually been issued three days before, and I am very glad to take this opportunity of correcting what I said then.
