To ask the Secretary of State for Defence, with reference to the oral contribution of the Minister for Defence Procurement of 23 April, Official Report, column 593, what progress has been made on Qatar’s order of the Hawk aircraft.
16 May 2018
Her Majesty's Government is continuing to work closely with BAE Systems and the Qatari government to finalise details of the Typhoon contract which was agreed on 10 December 2017. The package also includes the procurement of Hawk aircraft. It would be inappropriate to comment any further at this stage as to do so would prejudice commercial interests.
