HC Deb 15 April 1948 vol 449 c1164
49. Colonel Crosthwaite-Eyre

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer the terms of payment for the aircraft carrier recently sold to the Royal Netherlands Government; and why His Majesty's Government are satisfied with these terms.

Mr. Jay

It is not the policy of His Majesty's Government to disclose the terms under which vessels, surplus to the requirements of the Royal Navy, are sold to other Governments. The Government are fully satisfied with the terms of sale.
