§ 2. Mr. McMaster
asked the Minister of Aviation what discussions he has had with Short Bros. and Harland regarding the development and construction of a twin jet, 40-seat passenger aircraft which could replace the DC3 in airline service; and what decision he has taken.
§ Mr. McMaster
In thanking my right hon. Friend for that reply, may I ask whether he is aware of the wide potential market for an aircraft of this type and whether he will do all he can to expedite the work of his Department so that a speedy decision may be reached on this project?
