HC Deb 17 May 1938 vol 336 cc244-5W
Mr. Lyons

asked the Secretary of State for Air whether any decision has been reached as to the proportion of the further sums to be made available for civil aviation that will be devoted to the extension of air services?

Captain Balfour:

The whole of the increased subsidy which, on the recommendation of the Cadman Committee, is to be allotted to civil aviation, will be expended on the development and extension of air services in a varying manner according to needs to be met, but my right hon. Friend will be making a statement covering the matters referred to in my hon. and learned Friend's question during the course of the Debate to-morrow on the Second Reading of the Air Navigation (Financial Provisions) Bill.
