HC Deb 02 June 1919 vol 116 c1683
76. Captain W. BENN

asked the Under secretary of State to the Air Ministry whether he can make a statement about the future organisation of the lighter- than-air branch of the Air Service?

The UNDER-SECRETARY of STATE for AIR (Major-General Seely)

Proposals to transfer the responsibility for airship construction from the Admiralty to the Air Ministry are now under discussion between the two Departments. I think it would be inadvisable to make any further announcement at present, but I will do so as soon as details have been arranged.
