To ask Her Majesty’s Government whether, following the French Foreign Minister's visit to Iran, they plan to use the UK's political and official diplomacy to promote Airbus products and make clear that they are not solely French products, but contain significant components from the UK.

We will continue to promote the UK interests in Airbus in support of their global sales campaigns. We work closely with the Company and the governments of France, Germany and Spain on these campaigns given the shared economic benefits that arise from sales of Airbus aircraft. Because of the significant level of UK products on Airbus aircraft, the company is frequently represented on UK trade missions; it also enjoys the financial support of UK Export Finance and the commercial support of UK Trade & Investment’s overseas network.
