HC Deb 27 July 1950 vol 478 cc150-1W
Lord Malcolm Douglas-Hamilton

asked the Parliamentary Secretary to the Ministry of Civil Aviation what was the annual subsidy planned for air services in Scotland for 1939; and what proportion of the deficit for 1948 of British European Airways Corporation was in respect of Scottish air services.

Mr. Beswick

The annual subsidy planned for United Kingdom internal air services in 1939 was subject to a maximum of £100,000. No specific allocation of the subsidy was made for services in Scotland. It has been estimated that about one-third of British European Airways' operating deficit in 1948/49, was incurred on services to and within Scotland.
