Is the hon. Gentleman aware that the Japanese are offering a ten-year credit for the purchase of the YS 11, whereas in the case of its British competitor, the Hawker-Siddeley HS 748, the Government are giving only 5 years' credit? Will he take steps to see that British manufacturers are able to offer credit terms which are at least as good as the Japanese or any other manufacturers with whom we are competing?
