HC Deb 21 February 1924 vol 169 cc2006-7W
Lieut. - Commander KENWORTHY

asked the Under-Secretary of State for Air if there is any new development that is preventing the completion of the negotiations in regard to the Imperial airship scheme; and what is his policy with regard to this scheme?


asked the Under-Secretary of State for Air if, in view of the fact that the Imperial airship scheme has been under consideration of the Department concerned for nearly two years, has been approved, and the main contracts agreed to by the late Government, he will endeavour to get an early decision on this matter; and whether he will make a statement as to the Government's proposals regarding this scheme?


I am not at present in a position to add anything to the reply given on the 18th instant by my right hon. Friend the Prime Minister to the hon. and gallant Member for Maidstone (Commander Bellairs), but the Government are fully alive to the need for an early decision in this matter.
