HC Deb 26 November 1930 vol 245 cc1307-8

asked the Under-Secretary of State for Air whether, with regard to next year's Schneider trophy race, he will remove the conditions attaching to the loan of the Super-marine S 6 and the Gloster-Napier sea- planes and will allow officers of the Royal Air Force to participate in the contest; and whether he has had any conferences with the Royal Aero Club on the matter?


The International Aeronautical Federation is, I understand, holding a meeting early next month to discuss certain outstanding questions with regard to next year's Schneider trophy race. Arrangements have provisionally been made for a meeting after this date between the Air Ministry and the Royal Aero Club. In the meantime, I cannot usefully make any announcement on the questions raised by my hon. Friend.
