HC Deb 21 June 1939 vol 348 c2216
30. Mr. Perkins

asked the Secretary of State for Air whether he proposes to take any action as a result of the report of the Committee on the Control of Flying?

Sir K. Wood

Yes, Sir. I am glad to announce that His Majesty's Government are largely in agreement with the recommendations of the Committee and with the principles underlying them. A White Paper setting out the Government's decision on each of the recommendations is being published this evening. Where a recommendation can be put into effect by administrative action or by the amendment of regulations, this is, being done forthwith. I should like to take this opportunity of expressing my gratitude to Lord Gorell and his colleagues for their most valuable report.

Mr. Perkins

Will my right hon. Friend be able by the power of regulation to control aerial advertising.

Sir K. Wood

No, Sir; I think legislation may be necessary.
