HC Deb 29 April 1937 vol 323 c549W
Sir A. Wilson

asked the Under-Secretary of State for Air what sums have been expended on the preparation and publication, respectively, of a meteorological chronology from B.C. 2668 to A.D. 1450, recently published by direction of the Air Ministry, under the authority of the Meteorological Committee; and whether he is satisfied that this work serves a useful scientific purpose?

Sir P. Sassoon

The sum expended on the publication of this work, which is on sale as a publication of His Majesty's Stationery Office, was approximately £212. No other expense was incurred, as preparation of the material was undertaken by the author in his own time. The memoir was submitted in manuscript to the Meteorological Committee who recommended its publication on the ground that the information collected by the author is valuable for the study of changes of climate.
