§ Mr. LANSBURY
asked the Under-Secretary of State for India whether, in connection with the Imperial airways scheme, it is the intention of the Government of India to proceed with 15 additional stations and the appointment of staff for the same; whether he will inform the House of the total cost involved in carrying out this scheme; and whether the whole amount will be chargeable to Indian revenues and subject to the vote of the Indian Assembly?
§ Earl WINTERTON
The total demand for civil aviation in the Budget for 1927–28 was Rs. 3,96,000. This was all votable and has actually been voted. My Noble Friend the Secretary of State for India has not received full details of the man- 577W ner in which the money is intended to be used, and cannot say how many new stations are to be proceeded with?
