32. Mr. SANDYS

asked the Secretary of State for Air what assistance is being given by the Government to encourage the development of gliding?

The UNDER-SECRETARY of STATE for AIR (Sir Philip Sassoon)

A draft scheme for the allocation and administration of this subsidy, submitted by the recently reconstituted British Gliding Association, has been accepted in principle.


Is the Under-Secretary prepared to place the agreement before the House for consideration?


The House has already approved the principle.
