HC Deb 06 July 1920 vol 131 cc1230-1
55. Major-General SEELY

asked the Lord Privy Seal whether the Government have considered the recently published Report of Lord Weir's Committee on Civil Aviation; and what action it is proposed to take in the matter?


I have been asked to answer this question. The Report is still under the consideration of His Majesty's Government, and no final decision has yet been reached.

Major-General SEELY

Can the right hon. Gentleman say when it is likely that a decision will be taken on this very important matter? The Report has been in for some time. It was drawn up more than two months ago. Can the right hon. Gentleman give any idea when there will be a decision?


I cannot give a date. I hope it may be possible in the course of the present month.


Is the right hon. Gentleman aware that there is complete stagnation in civil aviation pending a decision on this matter?


I am not aware that there is complete stagnation. On the contrary, a considerable amount of progress has been made.
