§ The UNDER-SECRETARY of STATE for AIR (Sir Philip Sassoon)
An exact calculation is not possible, but the amount may be taken as not less than £25,000.
§ Sir P. SASSOON
It is a question of expense. Of course we act in conformity with the practice in the older services which have to provide for far larger numbers of personnel.
§ Mr. T. WILLIAMS
Does the right hon. Gentleman not consider that the Air service is a long way in advance of the older services?
