Subject:  UK FT's and Saucers

Having browsed through the ongoing debate regarding whether the
UK FT's are government "Black" projects or not, I had a sudden
question pop into my head, and was wondering which of our
erstwhile list members could answer it:

What happened to the material that Hawker-Siddely acquired from
the A.V Roe aircraft company in the 1950s?  Did this lead
directly to the design of the Harrier? What about the Avrocar?
Can it be confirmed what exactly the UK firm got with respect to
Avro's discontinued research?

Do we know where the original A.V Roe design and engineering
staff ended up? I understand it was NASA, Lockheed, and some
other companies.

Why am I asking this? Well, why the sudden propogation of FT's in
various countries, all possibly in a similar timeframe?
