HC Deb 20 March 1930 vol 236 c2112W

asked the First Lord of the Admiralty if his attention has been drawn to the suggestion that one of the Fleet aircraft carriers should be sent to the Empire Exhibition at Buenos Aires next year to stimulate the sale of British aircraft in South America and generally to assist British participants in this exhibition; and whether he can make any statement in this connection?


The answer to the first part of the question is in the affirmative, and I need hardly add that the object in view is one that I fully endorse. As regards the second part of the question, the matter is under consideration, but Fleet and training requirements and the heavy expenditure on fuel which would be involved present very real difficulties.
