§ 25. Viscount CURZON
asked the Prime Minister whether he is aware that the Burney airship scheme received the approval of the recent Imperial Conference; and whether, before arriving at a decision to abandon it, the Dominions were consulted in the matter?
§ The LORD PRIVY SEAL (Mr. Clynes)
The only resolution passed by the Imperial Conference in this regard was that His Majesty's Government should circulate regular up-to-date information respecting the progress of this scheme, in order that consideration of Empire par- 21 ticipation might be facilitated. The necessary steps are being taken to this end. In these circumstances, the second part of the question does not arise.
§ Viscount CURZON
Do I understand from the answer of the right hon. Gentleman that the Dominions were or were not consulted before the Government decision was arrived at?
