The statement does not commit any member States to collaboration on specific projects.

asked the Secretary of State for Industry if he will give a list of the financial assistance given each year by his Department over the last 10 financial years to the aerospace equipment manufacturing industry for work on civil projects, showing how much money each project received during each year.

The aerospace equipment manufacturing industry has received funding for research and technology demonstration but this has not been for the support of specific projects.
