§ 54. Colonel WOODCOCK
asked the Secretary of State for Air what is the total amount spent up to date in building the airship R101 at Cardington; what is estimated will be the total cost to complete it; and what is the total estimated cost for the completion of the airship R100?
§ Sir P. SASSOON
The answer to the first part of the question is approximately £235,000; to the second, a further £165,000, approximately; to the last, that the contract price of £350,000 remains unaltered, though I understand that the Airship Guarantee Company anticipate that their actual expenditure on the R100 will materially exceed this figure.
