§ Commander BELLAIRS
asked the Financial Secretary to the Treasury the gross cost of the Navy, the Army, and the Air Force after the non-effective votes have been deducted; and stating in which item the cost of the naval air arm is included
The gross amounts provided in the Estimates for 1925–26 are:
£ Navy 56,175,470 Army (cash) 45,209,100 Air Force 21,174,800
The cost of the Fleet Air Arm (11,320,000) is provided in Air Votes, which receive a corresponding Appropriation-in-Aid from Navy Votes. This amount is, therefore, included in the gross totals given above both for the Navy and for the Air Force.
