HC Deb 22 November 1916 vol 87 c1391

asked the hon. Member for Rugby, as the Parliamentary representative of the Air Board, whether he can give any figures showing the prices paid by the Royal Flying Corps and the Royal Naval Air Service respectively for the same aeroplane?


I regret that I cannot supply figures of the kind referred to. Variations of price for the same machine may well arise, among other causes, from the differences in the number of machines ordered and in the degree of urgency with which they are required. I can assure my hon. Friend that this is a matter in which all possible measures are taken to secure co-operation between the two Services.
