§ 21. Mr. RAMSDEN
asked the Secretary of State for Air how far the various Governments of the Empire have, since the Imperial Economic Conference reported on the question in 1923, cooperated in the dissemination of information regarding experiments and new schemes for the development of civil aeronautics; and what have been the practical results of Empire co-operation?
§ Sir S. HOARE
A system is in force for the regular interchange of information between India, the Dominions and the Colonies and Great Britain, by means of "liaison letters" relating to developments in civil aviation, both technical and general, and of the mutual exchange of periodical and recurrent publications. The results obtained have been of considerable value, and should prove to be still more important in the future. My hon. Friend will find a good deal of information in regard to Imperial air development in the Annual Report on the Progress of Civil Aviation recently presented to Parliament (Cmd. 2707).
