§ 39. Sir H. Williams
asked the Minister of Transport and Civil Aviation what revenue is obtained, as the result of the equipment and ancillary services, the estimated cost of which in the year ended 31st March, 1954, amounted to £774,600.
§ Mr. Profumo
The group of equipment and ancillary services referred to is provided as an integral part of the civil aviation ground services organisation in the United Kingdom. Rather over half of this expenditure is related directly to safety in the air and cannot be accurately balanced against any item of revenue. The rest is related to safety on the ground and to the ancillary expenditure on ground equipment, being a contribution to the ground services which in the period under review realised a revenue of £1,269,000.
