HC Deb 01 March 1926 vol 192 cc1021-2
58. Captain CROOKSHANK

asked the Prime Minister if his attention has been called to the disadvantages that arise from going into Committee of Supply on the Air Estimates before the Navy and Army Estimates are published; and whether, in order that Members of the House may have simultaneous information regarding the three fighting services, he will in future years see that the three Estimates are in the hands of Members on the same day?


I will consider what can be done to meet the point raised by my hon. and gallant Friend.

Commander BELLAIRS

Will the right hon. Gentleman bear in mind that it would be a great advantage to the House if we had the Air Estimates at the same time because the House will then understand it is the one Department which is not reducing its Estimates.


I quite agree on the point, but my hon. and gallant Friend knows the practical difficulty.
