From Aircraft Engineering, sorry no date on page.
That report From Aircraft Engineering was translated and published in the German Magazin Flug-Revue, May 1963.
 
I've attached a drawing showing the main structure of the HP.117 200-seater from the brochure.

It's worth noting that the 200-seat and 300-seat designs had different planforms to optimise each airframe. The 300-seat design had the cabin extended towards the wingtips.

There is a nice paper on laminar flow research, that includes discussion of the HP117 in Laminar Flow Control – Back to the Future? by John E. Green, a paper published by American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics in 2008

It is also well covered in Vulcan's Hammer by Chris Gibson
 
From Ali Nuove 9/1961.
