§ 32. Mr. HULBERT
asked the Under-Secretary of State for Air what is the attitude of the Air Ministry on the subject of the grant of a subsidy for a trans-Atlantic airship service; and whether such a subsidy will receive sympathetic consideration despite the existing agreement with Imperial Airways?
§ Sir P. SASSOON
There is no present intention of granting a subsidy for the establishment of a trans-Atlantic airship service, though this is not precluded by the arrangements with Imperial Airways.
§ Mr. GEORGE GRIFFITHS
Will the Minister, before he gives any subsidy to these folk, see that the people who have to eat £25,000 worth of margarine get butter instead?
