7. Sir J. D. REES
asked the Secretary of State for India whether he can give the House any information regarding the proposed Imperial airship service in so far as it affects India; and whether the Government of India has taken or proposes to take any part in the suggested England, Egypt, India, and Australia service?
§ Mr. MONTAGU
I have been informed by the Government of India that they regret that the present financial position 789 precludes them from making any contribution to the establishment of the experimental Imperial airship service which has been proposed.
