§ Sir Cranley Onslow
To ask the President of the Board of Trade what has been the total expenditure to date on launch aid for the Airbus A330/340 aircraft; and when he expects repayments to begin. 
§ Mr. Greg Knight
Total launch aid of £447.1 million has been granted for the Airbus A330/340 aircraft. Based on current estimates of aircraft sales, I expect repayments to begin in early 1998.
