§ Mr. Elfyn Llwyd
To ask the Secretary of State for Defence what is the latest position vis-a-vis completion of the Eurofighter project; and if he will make a statement.
§ Mr. Freeman
Reorientation of the project is continuing. No decision on production is required until next year, but current planning assumes that the production investment phase will begin in early 1996 with a production contract for the first batch following about a year later.
