10. Sir Waldron Simmers

asked the Parliamentary Secretary to the Ministry of Civil Aviation if he will state the cost price of the aircraft and equipment in the possession of his Department; and the present value, allowing for depreciation and loss.

Mr. Lindgren

Two hundred and forty-eight thousand pounds. The depreciated value is £168,000. In addition my Department has possession of four old aircraft which originally cost £34,000. These are to be disposed of shortly and I am unable to state their present value.

Sir W. Smithers

Will the Parliamentary Secretary give me a promise to read the article on New Zealand in today's "Financial Times"
