§ Mr. LOUIS SMITH
asked the Under-Secretary of State for Air the approximate cost of providing a mooring mast in this country for airships; and whether, considering that we have only one mooring mast and two airships, he will expedite the provision of additional mooring accommodation?
§ Mr. MONTAGUE
In answer to the first part of the question, the cost (based on that of the Cardington mooring mast) would be approximately £50,000. As regards the second part, I explained the policy in this respect in my reply to the hon. Member on 3rd April.
