HC Deb 11 March 1929 vol 226 c811W

asked the Secretary of State for Air what is the total amount of expenditure to date on the airship R 101; what amount is it anticipated will be required to complete this airship; and whether he can give corresponding figures for the other new airship?


As regards airship R 101, I would refer the hon. and gallant Member to the statement on Airship Development on page 53 of the Air Estimates, 1929. As regards R 100, the contract price is £350,000, of which £235,000 has been paid to date, the balance payable for completion under the contract being thus £115,000.
