§ Sir P. Sassoon
As a table of figures is involved, I am circulating the reply in the OFFICIAL REPORT.
§ Mr. Lyons
Is it the policy of the Air Ministry at any time in the near future to encourage the promotion of British internal air lines by granting some State 1000 subvention? Has anything been done since the publication of the Maybury Report to give effect to any proposals for the promotion of home air lines?
§ Following is the reply:
§ Amounts of the air transport subsidies for the last year for which information is available and also of the civil aviation votes (including the subsidies) as a whole, since the latter figures may be regarded broadly as representing State aid to civil aviation. In each case the local currency has, for convenience, been converted to sterling at par rates of exchange.
|Air transport subsidy.||Total civil aviation vote.|
|Netherlands East Indies.||33,031||48,256|
|* Air Mail loss.|
