§ 17. Lieut.-Commander KENWORTHY
asked the Under-Secretary of State for Air whether he is now in a position to give the House any information about the future disposal of the airship R 100?
§ The UNDER-SECRETARY of STATE for AIR (Mr. Montague)
The report of the R 101 Inquiry was only received on the eve of the Easter Recess and future airship policy is still under consideration of His Majesty's Government. Pending a decision on policy, I am not in a position to make any statement as to R 100.
§ Lieut. - Commander KENWORTHY
Will it not be necessary to come to Parliament for money before any further experiments can take place with R 100?
§ Mr. MONTAGUE
An amount of £50,000 was allocated in the Estimates to keep a minimum staff together on airship work. Beyond that it depends on the question of policy.
