§ 18. Mr. Ralph Morley
asked the Parliamentary Secretary to the Ministry of Civil Aviation what has been done with the Solent flying boats.
§ Mr. Beswick
The Solent flying boats have been put in the hands of the manufacturers for sale, individual sales being subject to consultation with the Air Ministry.
§ Mr. Morley
Can my hon. Friend say what price has been received for these boats as a result of the sale?
Air Commodore Harvey,
Will the hon. Gentleman say whether B.O.A.C. ever bought these boats from the Ministry of Supply and, if they did not, what they paid for the hire of them?
