HC Deb 05 August 1941 vol 373 cc1790-1
62. Mr. Garro Jones

asked the Minister of Aircraft Production the relationship, including financial and administrative relationship, between the Air Transport Auxiliary Service and the British Overseas Airways Corporation?

The Parliamentary Secretary to the Ministry of Aircraft Production (Mr. Montague)

The Corporation administers certain of the activities of the Air Transport Auxiliary as the agent and under the instructions of my Ministry, with which responsibility for the administration of the service rests. The Corporation is not paid any fee for undertaking these duties, and neither it nor the Air Transport Auxiliary is a profit-making body. The expenditure which the Corporation incurs in respect of these activities is repaid from the Vote of my Ministry.
