§ 82. Mr. JOYNSON-HICKS
asked the Prime Minister whether the time has come-to confer further powers of an executive character on the Air Board, as foreshadowed at the time of its formation?
§ The PRIME MINISTER
I would refer the hon. Member to my reply yesterday to a question on the same subject by my hon. Friend the Member for North-West Bethnal Green. The Government has just received the first Report of the President of the Air Board, in which certain suggestions and recommendations are made, which are receiving our most careful consideration.
§ Major HUNT
Is the right hon. Gentleman aware that the Air Board will not go on unless it has full power?
§ Mr. JOYNSON-HICKS
May I ask whether the Report has not been in nearly three weeks now, and whether he can expedite its consideration? It is very important.
