To ask the Secretary of State for Defence (1) what is his Department's policy regarding the sharing of stealth aeroplane technology with other countries; (2) what discussions he has had with his French counterpart concerning the development of stealth technologies. 
My Department recognises that collaboration with other countries on defence equipment projects can help to achieve better value for money and provide opportunities for British industry. We are therefore willing to share military technologies with other countries where it appears to be in the United Kingdom's defence interests to do so, subject to national and international security constraints and obligations. The position with aircraft stealth technology is kept under close review. My right hon. Friend the Secretary of State for Defence has held no discussions with his French counterpart concerning the development of such technologies.
To ask the Secretary of State for Defence what assessment he has made of stealth technology for use in future RAF aircraft. 
The need for stealth technology for any future RAF aircraft will be assessed on a case-by-case basis as part of the requirement formulation process.
