§ 71. Mr. G. Longden
asked the Parliamentary Secretary to the Ministry of Civil Aviation how many hours were flown by his Department's aircraft in 1949.
§ Mr. Longden
Is the Minister satisfied that this work could not have been done more economically by civil charter aircraft?
§ Mr. Beswick
No, Sir, not by charter aircraft, although it is conceivable that it will be more economically done when we have more machines of an appropriate kind.
