To ask Her Majesty's Government what proportion of the order for the A400M aircraft had been cancelled as of 31 December 2009.

None of the aircraft ordered as part of the A400M launch contract has been cancelled to date.

As you may be aware, South Africa recently cancelled its order for eight A400M, however, these were additional aircraft and not part of the development of the core A400M programme, which is unaffected by this decision.
