HC Deb 07 May 1919 vol 115 c915
97. Lieutenant-Colonel MALONE

asked the Under-Secretary of State to the Air Ministry whether his proposals for the staff of the Controller of Civil Aviation have in any way been subject to revision from the Treasury; whether he will publish what his original proposals were; and what section of the staff has been omitted on account of Treasury pressure?

General SEELY

It would be contrary to precedent and to the public interest to make communications necessarily passing between the Treasury and other Government Departments with regard to expenditure the subject of discussion in the House.
