HC Deb 07 December 1927 vol 211 c1379
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?


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.
