§ Lieut.-Commander KENWORTHY (by Private Notice)
asked the Secretary of State for Air whether any assistance is being rendered by His Majesty's Government to Mr. Cobham in his flight to Australia and back?
§ Sir P. SASSOON
No grant is being made, as I understand that the private assistance available will be sufficient for the purpose of the flight; but my right hon. Friend regards the object of the flight with great sympathy, and the Royal Air Force will afford any facilities which may be in their power.
§ Lieut.-Commander KENWORTHY
Is the hon. Baronet prepared to tell me—if I am in order in asking—what is the latest news of this gallant attempt?
