That for the purposes of any Act of the present Session to provide for giving effect to a Convention on International Civil Aviation signed at Chicago, it is expedient—
Motion made, and Question proposed, "That this House doth agree with the Committee in the said Resolution."
§ 11.6 a.m.
§ Mr. Charles Williams (Torquay)
I should like, if I may, to ask the Government two questions on this. I think we are entitled to have some idea of what sub-paragraph (a, i) means, and I should also like an explanation of paragraph (b), items (i) and (ii). I should like to know what the amounts are which will be required for the payments and expenses and how we are likely to get the money back under that paragraph. I imagine it will be from people travelling by those lines, but we are entitled to have answers to these two questions which would I am sure, satisfy many hon. Members.
§ The Parliamentary Secretary to the Ministry of Civil Aviation (Mr. Lindgren)
The Financial Resolution is required in order to meet the dues which may be required from this country by the international organisation for development of services in States who are unable to develop their own. The repayments to the Treasury are in regard to services which may be rendered by this country and for which we may obtain repayment, perhaps at a later date, from States which decide that they will stand their own expenses.
§ Question put, and agreed to.
