HC Deb 23 March 1933 vol 276 cc507-8W

asked the Under-Secretary of State for Air to what extent his Department will co-operate in the meteorological research work to be undertaken between the Sudan and Rhodesia?


I assume my hon. Friend has in mind the new meteorological service which is under the control of the conference of East African Governors. The Air Ministry has given advice and assistance to this service, both as regards general plans and matters of technical detail, and will continue to do so. I may add that the service is financed by grants from the Governments of Egypt, Sudan, Uganda, Tanganyika, Kenya, Zanzibar and Northern Rhodesia.
