Looking for digital versionof the "Linotype Permanent" font

I am hoping to find a close fit digital font that would allow me to do digital proofs before casting hotmetal on an Intertype using "Linotype Permanent"

This is a typical sans serif jobbing font that I have available at my favourite Hot metal typesetting shop. I don't plan to use it digitally except for layout and line length checking so it can be any similar font with the same character metrixes.

Try Helvetica Neue where B, P, R are not as narrow as in Permanent, which in the latter is actually nicer.
Folio has a different Q.

Isn't Univers a close-enough alternative?
