To ask the Secretary of State for Defence if he will describe any current problems involved in developing the utility EH 101 helicopter project; what is the latest estimate of any cost over-runs; and if he will make a statement on the progress of this programme item.

The RAF utility EH 101 helicopter programme is currently in the project definition phase, the first stage of which will be completed by April 1990.

The results of this work will provide the basis for decisions on the next stage of the programme.
