§ 7. Mr. Onslow
asked the Minister of Technology if he will now make a further statement on the BAC3-11 project.
§ 22. Mr. Cronin
asked the Minister of Technology if he will now advance the British Aircraft Corporation £75 million to help launch its BAC3-11 aircraft having regard to the recent further information he has received as to this aircraft's commercial merit.
§ Mr. Onslow
Although the House will understand that the Minister does not wish to be rushed on this matter, is it too much to hope that the Minister will come to a decision before it is too late and make an announcement while the House is still sitting?
§ Mr. Leslie Huckfield
In view of the large amounts of public money which have in the past been involved on this project, and which will obviously be involved in future, will my right hon. Friend say what further plans he has to extend the public sector and public ownership in this industry?
