asked the Secretary of State for Defence whether he intends to continue the research and development by Hawker Siddeley of a new airborne early warning system after 1st April 1975, using an existing or a new contract.

An airborne early warning system based on the Nimrod aircraft is one of the options we are considering and we shall shortly be placing a contract with Hawker Siddeley for the project definition of that option. The final choice of system will not be made for some time.
