§ 49. Mr. Edelman
asked the President of the Board of Trade what licences he issued for the export of aircraft and aircraft components owned by Messrs. Handley Page following the firm's takeover by the Craven Corporation; how many aircraft were transferred abroad; and in what form these exports were requited.
§ Mrs. Gwyneth Dunwoody:
It is not the practice to disclose information about the issue of export licences to individual firms. Information about the number of Handley Page aircraft transferred abroad is not available.
§ 50. Mr. Edelman
asked the President of the Board of Trade if he will make a statement on the representations made to him by shop stewards of the Handley Page aircraft company concerning the disposal of certain assets of the company following the intervention in its affairs by an outside company.
