Interesting that is is quite different in several respects from the IV and Wessex. In many ways it looks more like a Fokker or Avro design
Two answers; first Richard Payne mentions these in 'Stuck on the Drawing Board' but does not provide details. Second, if these projects existed they would have been unsolicited. The Air Min and MAP did not put the the requirements from the Brabazon Committee out to tender, they were allocated to companies based on an assessment of their free design capacity taking into account any military work. The requirement went directly to Airspeed in mid 1943, who then proceeded to deviate from the official specification thereby shooting themselves neatly in the foot and handing a great opportunity to Vickers - The Viking filled the gap they left empty and the more advanced Viscount easily out competed the Ambassador.From, British Aircraft Specifications File,
