§ 42. Mr. WHITESIDE
asked the Under-Secretary of State for Air whether he has any information as to the number of members of the German Airsport Association; and what support, if any, the association receives from the German Government?
§ Sir P. SASSOON
The membership of the German Airsport Association (Deutsche Luftsport Verband) is estimated as about 60,000. I have no information as to the financial or other assistance given to the association by the German Government, apart from a grant of 1,230,000 R.Mks. for gliding and some small grants for prizes and free ballooning.
§ Mr. WHITESIDE
If a similar organisation were formed in this country, would it receive the support of the Air Ministry?
