Mr. ROBERT HAREOURT
asked the Prime Minister if His Majesty's Government have come to any decision as to the possibility of making a grant towards the cost of Lieutenant Shackleton's South Pole expedition, in view of its value and importance and the heavy personal liabilities which he incurred in connection with it?
§ The PRIME MINISTER
In view of the considerations referred to by my hon. Friend, the Government have decided to recommend Parliament to make a grant of £20,000 in aid of the expenditure incurred by the British Antaretic Expedition.
