§ 82. Sir E. CORNWALL
asked whether the War Council have given full and special consideration to the question of the best means of coordinating, organising, and developing the Air Services, or whether the matter is left to the War Office, Admiralty, and Munitions Department to adopt whatever policy they individually may prefer?
§ The PRIME MINISTER
The functions of the existing Air Board were explained to the House in May last by the then Under-Secretary of State for War and by my right hon. Friend the Secretary of State for the Colonies, and included the task of organising and coordinating the supply of material for the two Air Services. His Majesty's Government have just received the first Report of the President of the Air Board, and it is receiving their most careful consideration.
§ Mr. ASHLEY
When will the decision of the Government be announced, as there is great feeling in the country about this matter?
