§ Mr. Jackson
asked the Minister of Aviation how many VC10 aircraft have now been sold overseas; and what orders are in prospect.
§ Mr. Stonehouse
Export orders have so far been secured for six VC10 or Super VC10 aircraft—three for Ghana and three for East African Airways. The British Aircraft Corporation is negotiating with a number of prospective customers and the details of these negotiations are commercially confidential. We are in close 167W touch with the Corporation and are continuing to give every possible assistance to help secure overseas orders for this fine aircraft.
