The P.150 was a 1968 project and the last "supersonic Buccaneer" project.

Others were:

B.109 (1959, Mach 1.65 unsolicited bid for a Canadian Interceptor)
B.111/112/117/113/116 (c.1960, reheated Spey, Mach 1.5, RAF/RN/RN/RAAF/German Naval AF)
B.129 (1962, Mach 2.0 RN fighter)
P.140 (1964, RN fighter)

Roy Boot's book is a most excellent resource on unbuilt Buccaneer variants, not just the Supersonic ones. Definitely a book worth buying.

There was also a supersonic Buccaneer project called the P.142 according to Appendix One of Tony Buttler's British Secret Projects: Jet Bombers Since 1949.

Yes, and you forgot to mention the only piece of information we know, which is the date of 1965.
