§ Mr. Churchill
asked the Secretary of State for Trade if, pursuant to the answer he gave the hon. Member for Stretford on 14th February 1977, he will state whether or not any United Kingdom-based firm remains in negotiation with the USSR over the supply of technology in connection with the Kuznetsov NK 144 engine.
Mr. Aleacher :
I am not aware of any negotiations which are still continuing for the supply of technology for the NK 144 engine. Any exports of such technology would in any event require Government approval.
