  • Description

    British Minister of Aviation Peter Thorneycroft arrived in Bonn, West Germany, Jan 10, for discussions with West German Ministers on the proposal to develop a space launcher for scientific and commercial purposes in collaboration with European and British Commonwealth countries.

    He will review with Herr Strass (West German Defence Minister)Anglo-German co-operation in military vertical take-off aircraft. The Germans, it was expected, would again discuss the adoption by them of a British tank gun. As far as the space project is concerned, Mr. Thorneycroft will mainly be seeking German financial support.

    This is to be the subject of an international conference to be convened by the British and French Governments. A West German Foreign Ministry spokesman has said the Bonn Government is politically sympathetic to any international project involving co-production with Britain, but the technical and financial side be carefully examined.

    Aviation Minister Thorneycroft is to have similar talks in Denmark, Norway and Sweden.
